IF: Forward

The Angel Band

I had a dream last night. There were two top-hatted musicians, twins I think, but they were dressed in white shirts and looking very serious. There were other musicians with them, but I didn't see them as clearly. I drew them this morning in Sketchbook Pro. I couldn't help thinking of the many "societies" and causes at the turn of the 19th and 20th Century. Everyone had a band and a banner. I call this group the Angel Band... Their cause is greater than most; "Justice for all men" = Forward thinking as they witnessed some of the hardest times in the deep south.
