      1. You know you are right! I read too much into these photos and create my own little sad stories. Thanks, Keith. I need to snap out of it! 🙂

  1. I think it would be good to walk around and actually take in things sometimes. It gives a person pause to reflect. I should stop complaining, it could be worse. And unfortunately is.

    And sometimes you find that people who SEEM to have less fortunate circumstances are just as – if not more so – happy as those ‘better off’.

    1. onomatopoeicbliss,

      I walk and take things in all the time. Sometimes, I want to document what I see and feel. With this image, I am not commenting on her circumstances, of which I cannot judge. She could be famously happy as far as I am concerned. I liked the incongruity of her stature and the fact she has a stuffed elephant toy around her neck. She seemed perfectly comfortable and at ease with herself. I also noticed she has a hospital ID band around her right wrist, part of which you can see sticking out from underneath her sleeve. There is more story here than I can give.
