This has always been one of my favorite pieces. She was one of my first "dreaded" gals, and she has a quote scribbled along the edge of her hair. But when I cropped the image to show details, something pierced my heart. And these words seemed to fit so perfectly. Why do I love her so much? Maybe because she's imperfect, unfinished, and beautiful all at the same time. Looking into her eyes stirred my heart's own story, and all the whispers of all the other heart stories drifted into my imagination. Millions of stories; most the world will never know, but each one precious to the heart that holds it.
