the bounty


how much life and light one face holds 
and reflects!
i wonder on the uncountable stories,
the immeasurable joy and pain.

    1. I love her! Fantastic portrait. Look at that admixture of joy and sorrow that radiates from her. My mother's eyes shone like that, too.

  5. A great portrait, a photograph of a face that says a lot.
    Life has not been easy for her, for anyone of his generation but is a strong woman.
    He is very proud of you and she also loves you.

    Greetings to you and your mother
