      Thank you! Hope you had a moment to read the link to the story behind the portrait that’s just beneath the poem…

  2. It’s a strong portrait of a woman who has had to struggle in life. I love her relax posture – and maybe a little grumpy expression. The woman, the building and the house is all very Guatemala. The poem is thought provoking and full of insight. Great post!

  3. Yes, this is wonderful. We can feel her history, her character, her endurance all at once. Beautiful image!
