We are surrounded by beauty and greatness. Sometimes we are struck by it unsuspectedly. Djanka discovered Christopher selling his cd’s on Yonge Street and I remember the excitement in her voice when she called me to announce our next portrait subject. It’s an energetic thing and you know it when you are in its presence. Christopher has it. That pure energy that we describe as talent, as looks, as persona. It is magical when that energy is not clouded by history and flows unobstructed.
