I considered this for a while. I wanted to do plain in the sense of not standing out, but I think everyone has something special or beautiful to them, so visualising someone "plain" would be hard.
Hence the blank face. Point is, this little guy feels much more plain than he actually is. What he doesn't know, is that in 56 hours and 23 minutes he will meet someone who will make him see what a very special and beautiful person he is.
Stephanie and Mav (who did 3191 A Year of Mornings) are now doing A Year of Evenings. Wonderful:)
Maditi is doing something similar.
That's a very specific time for him to meet someone. When it happens I'm sure it will be pure magic ;)ReplyDelete
I love the wallpaper background and your touching, true words.
I also checked out those animal photos from the link below. Oh my God!!!!! Thanks, I've forwarded his link.
That's a lovely thought.ReplyDelete

Der er stadig omkring 9 timer til Plains særlige møde og jeg håber det gør ham lykkelig, og at han vil se, at han indeholder alt - som vi alle gør.
he wouldn't talk too much at all, would he?ReplyDelete
He would, actually. Just give him time ;)ReplyDelete
