I'd been in hibernation mode for the last few days but the laughter, antics and chatter of the two angels was perfect to get me right out of it. When we were going down to the car Sohana saw a Filipina woman sitting alone in the lobby. She ran straight up to her and asked," Are you lost?" The woman was clearly surprised and didn't know what to say. I apologised to her and dragged Sohana by the hand telling her,"She's not lost, she's just waiting for someone." Sohana smiled up at me as though she understood and then ran away in the next instant having forgotten all about it. Bless the short memory of children.
This huge piece completely took my breath away. This is one third of the whole painting. The artist's imagination is indescribable. Monkeys spilling out of a hatchback, a couple kissing completely oblivious to the world, a man in a turban with his camel, a little boy kissing a little girl. It's a bizarre and beautiful painting. And it costs 70,000 USD. Phew! I wonder which lucky, rich bastard is going to own it. Whoever it is I hope he/she loves it as much as I did.
And another selfie in a mirror. My husband said,"This is your best selfie. There's no self in it." It gives you the feeling of how our identity is most of the time held together by wires with scars of experience.
And to end this post here's Ahana, Sohana and I so very very very happy!
