"Thunder Only Happens When It's Raining"

He wasn't really Prince Rainier - he was just the man who babysitted my mother as a child, forever imprinting on his memory the phone call he received from my grandmother the night of my mother's passing.
(I was about 2 years old at the time).

Some 18 years later, I find myself behind the camera while this man embodies the spirit of Liberace in his living room and asserts to the camera (to me) "...give what talents you have to your fellow man in the world."

"...I don't think you make anything much out of it - that which is false -
why bother, when you can do it with what's true?"
-Paul Bowles
Tangier, 1996.
