a tale of two hearts

her eyes

This month on the magical calendar that sits on my desk at work we're in Zambia.
Do you remember meeting her?

I was so struck by her confidence. 
Recently I've become obsessed with things that give me perspective, things that can generate a sense of hope against the odds.

Looking into her eyes gives me hope for her future.
Looking at what surrounds her on the other hand breaks my heart.

One of these perspectives paralyses, the other empowers and inspires.
I'm choosing to look into her eyes. I hope she does too.
