Tara Peterson writes: "My oldest son and I were on one of our Sunday walks when the question- "why can't I play the video games my friends can play," came up. Of course I knew he was referring to the violent, shoot 'em up kinds, which are absolutely forbidden in our house, but I decided to turn this into an impressionable conversation.
The road we live on is a beautiful country road that winds through the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia. Everywhere you look there are sprawling hills and beautiful vegetation. There are many horse farms and other forms of wildlife which further enhances the beauty of the landscape. I stopped in front of one of the many 50 acre horse farms and began to paint a picture for my son."
