Great to meet you Sandra! yeah, I chose not to have kids and I'm fine with it, but I think if kids turn out okay is when they get older and can help you too.
I drew the picture 1 month and a week before my mother had trouble walking. Within a few months it was cancer. She died in May 1997, my best friend killed himself in November, and then my father died 3 weeks later. My next door neighbor died 2 months after that. Everyone in all those houses were dead in 8 months but me (the rowhouse in the center. on the left is my parents' house). but me. I had no idea when I did the picture why I chose those houses. My mother got cancer where the thing comes down, too. It and many weird things that have happened really just goes to show there truly is more to this life than most people can imagine. Maybe I should put this information with the painting. It's true, people can believe it or whatever. You probably understand being spiritual.
