Inspiring women…

In my world amazing women get giant statues built to honour them in beautiful cities where tourists stroll with umbrellas to appreciate the simple things in the fountain-mist. The simple things like a garden well tended, a tea perfectly steeped, the gift of a good book, and the precision and beauty of a moment caught in a photograph.

This is a portrait-of-sorts of my aunt, who can appreciate all those things she does so well (along with so many other things), and whose presence is a gift to all who know her.
