Sometimes you want to help someone so badly, and you give them tons of advice. But advice only goes so far. The person has to actually want to help themselves, and there is nothing you can do. Reminds me of The Matrix, I love that movie -- when Morpheus says one of his famous lines to Neo. Brilliant!

This tile was a test, working with watercolor background surrounding a tri-gem brooch.
