Illustration Friday: Song

While I was painting this,
my Mom was listening to a new album she bought.
I was glancing at her, her eyes closed, swaying her head
while sitting beside me.

"Mommy, what is that song?"

"Your Hand in Mine"

"Why is there nobody singing?"

"That's what you call instrumental, honey"

"But is that still music?"

"Of course! Is it nice?"

"Yes. I like it. Do you like it, Mommy?"

"It's among my favorites, baby"

"Who made that?"

"Explosions in the Sky."


So we both listened to the whole album again.
She was silent. And so was I.
And after finishing my painting she asked me
what I wanna call it. I said...
The Sky.
