In Romania, Malaesia, a mother and her baby wait at the entrance of a temple in a cave. One must wonder how the baby was injured. The mother seems taken away or to be contemplating the next move. This picture was taken by one of my students, Andreea, whose home is in Romania. She has a brilliant eye, one that turns mundane into power. I love this picture because it reminds me that the minute one becomes a mother, life alters and even our eyes see the world differently. A mother can never look without foreshadowing. She becomes a foreshadow.
