This is the first picture in the sketchbook that Donna discovers in The Bird that Sang in Color. Music is already a part of the picture as it shows a bunch of albums beside Vincent, but it also reveals another type of music–the music of childhood. A time without rules, except for those imposed by adults; a time for reading comic books and listening to albums without feeling guilty. Most of all, a time of freedom, which is the major theme of this novel. That is, Donna discovers that true happiness comes from living by drawing her own pictures, instead of copying from someone else; from not conforming to society’s expectations and artificial constructs. She comes to realize that Vincent always had the music of childhood inside of him, even as an adult–the music of spontaneity, freedom, and joy!
