The beauty of diverse ideas is evident throughout Manhattan

When an artist lets go of ownership of her art so her young daughter can doodle on it, the results are beautiful. Both visually and metaphorically, the drawings fascinated me. There’s something wonderful about sharing. In fact, it reminds me of one of my favorite quotes:

“No one has the fullness of the truth.

It is through dialogue, conversations,

that we come to the greater truth.”

-Sister Virginia Rodee

The mother’s portraits and the daughter’s sketches combine to provide something greater than either is alone.
