 Ruins of Ur Dunin                          Done in WatercolorA legend is told of a young soldier who got separated from his group in battle one day. He became helplessly lost as day became night and night again became day. Finally he spied an ancient and moss grown ruin and seeking shelter approached it. He found it abandonded, the victim of the wars of days long since past. He set up shelter in the ruins and every day he sought to leave the ruins and find his way home but with no luck. eventually after months of this he found a chamber deep in the ruins which held a pristine life sized angel statue carved of glistening alabaster. He stayed awhile here and returned to this angel often. He talked to her and told her all the troubles of his world, of his life and his hopes for the future. days became weeks, weeks became months, months became years.finally the soldier had grown into an old worn elder and sensing death was near, laid himself down at the angels feet. he closed his eyes and spoke to the statue the words  "I love you." to which he heard a serene voice say "I love you too". Startled the soldier opened his eyes to find himself young again, laying on the ground outside the woods and in the arms of a beautiful woman who looked exactly like the statue. what happened to them after that is anyones guess but i like to think they lived happily ever after.
