finally I have finished painting our studio:
today some winter sun peeped through sheer blinds:
shapes from my garden:
creating even more tones of grey:

This morning we woke up to aftershocks around 5am. Again, the tremors were met with singing. The singing is almost as forceful as the quakes. They are still singing now with all of their force – Hallelujah! It is as if they are saying “we are not afraid!” These people are so beautiful that I cry even now, as my ears are filled with their voices and I am writing these lines, hoping that the power will hold out. There are no others like the Haitian people.
The singing was all night. There were other aftershocks throughout the night. But this singing now is the singing that will also meet the sun as it comes up to show us all of the damage once again. Bittersweet sunrise.
