Better times than now about health, liveliness and ardour; rather worse regarding my freedom and my innermost feelings, more menaced back then.
I have been tempted to photoshop that cut and slightly inflamed lower lip, but I have finally seen it adds something interesting to the expression –sweet, but also reluctant and a bit helpless– and, of course, the actual feelings, as far as I can recall them.
(There is something more in that glance –further darkened after painting the pic blue– that I cannot grasp now; maybe it was some wish or explicit request of something I never obtained.)
