Lovely, Edis. Especially liked Conner, not many are lucky to have such a strong and centered person in their lives:)
But just some feedback, that image at the top has no bearing whatsoever to the story — that’s a hindu deity being painted for one of the local festival celebrations. I’ve always found images on stories to be leading up to or highlighting some message/theme. This one actually takes the focus away from your beautiful narrative on following one’s heart!
(Unless I’m missing something; am I?)
