"The future belongs...

... to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams"

Words by Eleanor Roosevelt, who set an example herself while striving to make the world our mutual responsibility. Literature is laden with words on following one's dream and how only the noblest and strongest dare try giving it reality.

Each of the drowned in The Mediterranean listened to and acted upon their dreaming, not as numbers, but as individuals.

In both drawings the sea is calm. There is no noise, no outer movement.

We as beholders look with him over his shoulders above, drawn in by the light of the stars, distorted in the reflection of the water. 

And below we look at him, having forgotten the meaning of loving thy neighbor.
