Artist's Description

Somewhere in the Plaka in Athens I passed this little Roma girl heading home from school. Her accordion was draped over her head, doubling as a sunshade, and emitting a quiet, wheezy sigh and a half-hearted Middle “C” as I drew level.
 
Oh how I wished I could have seen her coming, and had my camera up in time. Overheated and tired she may well have been, but I am certain, that beneath that buckled “wheezebox”, I would have seen the happiest little face, smiling and humming along to the asthmatic music – the start of a life that will, hopefully, burn so bright.

 
 
Thank you Maree Cardinale for the wheezebox
