Eyes, Fishes & Tears

The moment you awake in the morning and you realize that you can’t move, you must be bold. And that is only the beginning. It is allowed to show some tears! The Fishes are the symbol of hope. Hope helps to be bold!

During my Holidays in the south of Germany, in the black forest, I draw this picture. It is sometimes not easy to admit the sadness that a disease like Parkinson’s brings. But even fighters like us sometimes come to tears.They are allowed, they are part of it, they are a sign of our strength.
