What Caught My Eye #12

… there’s a typical look of the mother:
skin a little ashier than the average woman her age,
hollows under the eyes a little more pronounced,
a smile playing about her lips as the eyes dart nervously, 
wondering what might happen next.
She is sometimes proud, sometimes amused.
She is never quite relaxed.”
~ Judith Newman
from her book To Siri, With Love
A Mother, Her Autistic Son and the Kindness of Machines
