A photographer friend of mine took this picture in Morocco earlier this year. Her name is Kate Cordsen. We both grew up in Great Falls, VA at the same time. She was a few years younger than I so I didn't know her well, but I would see her around all the time. Her brother Peter was my friend and everyone knew her as Sloopy, her nickname.
As happens so often with e-media these days, our paths crossed. In our case it was about a year and a half ago through home town connections. I'm glad too because I love Art and Kate has become a really super talented and accomplished photographer. Her work is awesome and she posts it frequently so I get to check it out pretty often and it's very good. She has a few exhibitions coming up in 2013, something out in Australian Vogue about now and other magazines, too.
Back to Kate's picture. I really like it. There's a compelling story to it that drew me in.

It's a beautifully captured image of a real and all too frequent life. A life that none of us would want for ourselves. Sometimes Art helps us to see things outside of ourselves with such clarity that we find poignant inspiration.
Peace and roll strong.
