reminds one of a child gazing out into the world. He is fascinated
by all that would seem forgotten. He discovers things that others
only begin to notice upon beholding and exploring his paintings.
Said imbues the things with a new consciousness. He creates
a fascinating world - one viewed with the eyes of both a boy
and a man who is capable of yearning for what is past with all
his heart. Childhood thus lives on through maturity to become
a part of life's story - our story. And it is thus that Said
fulfills his promise.
