splendid suns

A smiling little boy, with little to smile about. He lives in one room with his father, babybrother and heavily depressed mother. She had to leave her children behind in Afghanistan Today I finished 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' . A bridge between me and them.

Encounter II

My friend who is adopted is pregnant.
'This (looking at her belly) is the first family I'm going to meet', she said.

Encounter I

This is how I was sitting in the train this evening. Thinking about today. Two encounters. One expected, one unexpected (very). Both were a jump back in time.
