This Piece is part of my "The Pains & The Pleasures" series. This is a portrait of someone I always looked forward to meeting but, never had the chance to...when I met him we couldn't do anything but stare at each other in awe, we both knew who we were, we both knew we were suppose to have met each other at some point a long time ago...but to FINALLY meet "there" under those "circumstances"...Small world, Weird world, Strange world.
"It's for the best, timing is everything"
Thank you kind, unfamiliar yet comforting stranger. (Now, Friend)
I plan on seeing you again, this time intentionally.
