The W represents Women to me. The word passion under the W couldn't have been put in a better place. It's who I am. I do everything with passion. I placed a piece of a broken plate which has traveled with me from Germany and to the many places I have moved until settling here in Charles Town some 14 years ago. This plate belonged to my grandmother, then my mom and then passed on to me. I have never bought my- self any dishes and every time another piece breaks I mourn. This mural is part of the city where I found my home. "Where my heart is. I put a little bit of my history and a lit- tle bit of my love and a lot of passion into that W.
