She would watch us many times as we walked down the hill to the sanctuary and then back up again to the administrative offices.
Her eyes, always so intent, ever-observant.
On this day I asked if I could take her picture.
She said yes.
Outside the gate to her home she stood so still and waited for me to indicate that I was done.
Only when I showed her the image on the small screen did a corner of her mouth turn slightly upward in what I think may have been a smile.
This was just a snapshot. Something captured so quickly in my comings and goings of that week.
At the time, I did not notice the shoes on her feet... if you can call them that.
It was not until I came home and uploaded the photos to my computer that I realized.
