'Distant Shore'

'Distant Shore' shows what appears to be a small boy wrapped in a blue blanket, peering over his shoulder into what felt to me to be the Great Beyond.

Though it has the curiosity of being asymmetrical, there is something haunting and deep in it's utter simplicity.  The boy seems to be watching the approach of something, or at least, waiting in anticipation.  And I think we are all this little boy, waiting expectantly for the ability to cross, waiting to see what is over that elusive horizon.
