  1. Mira, I have seen similar memorable photos such as you posted, in a magazine named Popular Photography . This photo was in black and white, with many significant greys, of a tall, undernourished woman, standing tall with a calm, acceptant look on her face. The poor dress she wore was light grey with long thin lines up-and-down also crosswise. Entire books could or have been written that make us weep for the many unfortunate ones, and their different emotional hardships .

    • Yes, volumes! Especially for those of us who are over-empathetic…and yet I still believe that suffering enriches the wise soul – not that we should seek it, but when it comes, accept and allow it to mature us into richer wine. Om!
