This is hardly a picture of happiness.
The child lying down on a bare rock on a seemingly sunny day. Hola!the day was perfectly lit but was far from sunny and on the top of that rock, it's cold and windy.
|Happy Day 98|
My precious little daughter was so happy by the gusts of wind that her little heart welled up with emotion and she lied down to kiss the rock... 'mother nature' she called it.
I clicked pictures fearing the moment may pass soon but, was mildly surprised to see her lying there as if sleeping. I hovered uncertainly for a minute then left her on her own and sat a little away from her. She was still. Her brother explored the whole area making as much noise as one kid can manage on his own but, she was there unperturbed... standing up only when it was time for us to leave.
Later in the car, when I asked her what she was doing lying there on the rock? She said, "I was 'loving' the rock mother nature for making me so happy"
"Did you feel sleepy?" I prompted
"No, just chain (calm). But, the next time, I'll take a pillow and sleep" she smiled.
It was her way to express gratitude for the 'rocky mother nature' as it had provided her with a wonderful experience. What was wonderful exactly, she could not put in words and I stopped probing afraid to spoil her moment.
I was overwhelmed with an inexplicable gratitude and it made the image right for the Happy day.
