The lines on my face

I read this in a book the other day and I can’t stop thinking about it. Literally. I love how the words string together and somehow the simile connects on a visceral level. “.. life is a portrait. It’s a picture you paint everyday, every minute, every second, with the palette you were given at […]

VoSD 3015- Doggie portraits again

Eyes only for you

I asked my husband and kids – what do you think the dog is saying to Rakesh? And their answer was – ‘I looooove you‘. Though it was said with a scrunched up face and a gooey mushy voice. I think the little one is saying that too. But over and above the love I […]
