Picture of Rosa



I took this picture a few weeks ago as I and Rosa were sitting on the bench down at the shopping center talking up from the dollar store. FIWA wanted one so I called Rosa and she said it would be fine. She keeps hoping like George that my writings will make her famous. She doesn't realize how many people read this blog or she wouldn't let me do this no doubt. I love this picture and the story it tells.

That. Is an amazing picture. You've captured her in a pic and with your words. I told you she's someone I'd love to know. So real. So kind. So lived life.

Thank you so much for sharing. And thank Rosa for me, too please :)

You truly have an artistic gift. Don't let your Dad know...he'll want to make you famous :)

Rosa looks beautiful!

Aha, the famous Rosa does have a face. I can definitely see she won't be taking anyone's bullshit. Looks like a woman that can hold her own. Rough exterior covering a softer interior. It's a defense mechanism.

Please tell Rosa we think she is beautiful - inside and out. We love her even more now.

I agree with everyone's comments. I'll add that she looks much different than I expected. You once remarked that she looked 'manly', or something to that effect. She shows the signs of a hard life, but I think she's beautiful.

PS.
Any other friends that might like to have their pictures taken?

Melanie said...

Your writing is so interesting and polished, that half the time I think it must be fiction. How do you keep it all together, and still express yourself so well? But the picture of Rosa does help verify it for me.

Thank you and Rosa for sharing this picture. She's exactly how I pictured her in my mind. As I read your words, I saw the hard life and sadness in her eyes. The lines on her face are from troubles that would make other people crumble, but the strength is somewhere just below the skin.

Tell her she's famous, she is seen, counted, heard and appreciated for just being the woman she is.

Again, thank you.

Amanda said...

Please tell her from me...I think she is beautiful.
