The Rule of Time is a piece of a story about the "Little Brown Girl". This little girl is beginning a journey in a world that can sometimes be difficult and confusing to maneuver through. As we look at The Rule of Time we see Little Brown Girl at an early age of life, measuring her height which is symbolic of her growth both physically and as an individual. As the poem states, "Grow and grow, pass every barrier and line & as you grow, don't forget to shine! For that my love, is the true Rule of Time!" This mosaic was created with the intent to encourage everyone from diverse backgrounds and age groups to continue to grow and shine, for that my loves, is the true Rule of Time! — Lauren Nefesha
