Well, finding a scene for this event seemed hard to me. Despite a couple of dictionaries and some knowledge of English, I couldn't really find out about the precise meaning. So I have to trust in the usual broad coverage of the wwp themes and the hint in the theme description "What keeps you going?"

What I want to show you is a bit more personal than usual. It's my children and again THEIR view of "keep going". For my daughter (nearly 9 years of age) it is drawing. She is producing pictures continuously and sometimes her quality control says NO to an artwork, like in this case (watch her throwing a paper ball away (- her idea)). For my son (3 years of age) right now it is walking around with his sword and a helmet (his father is responsible for the shape of the first - but rejects any participation with the latter). Making music is only useful to obscure this...

On the other hand, both have fellow interests which seem highly important for their daily life: Steering up conflicts and keeping peace. Many times they just drive us parents mad with this - but hey, we are not here on Earth to make our living comfortable but to make it worthwhile: What is a living without children or taking care for children?

So, I quite often forget this in my daily life, but when I have a minute to think it over: Yes, my family keeps me going :-)

P.S. A word on the dramatic composition: the image was meant to show a more elaborated version with more pairs of action. In the end I had to decide if I should work out this panorama a bit more or make it more fun for my children to be part of it. You may take the room (my daughters) itself to compensate for this, it's a mess and you can find plenty of details here. To our excuse I want to say that we try to reconstruct the former order every sunday and the panorama has been taken on saturday. So take it as it is :-)
