I have only three drafts left to correct and complete for posting on this blog before taking a break in August 13th. I do need a break. I think as well that Ariel herself would want me to stop and rest –at least with respect to this blog of hers.
This is not a draft left by her: just a picture I took near her home in Andorra one autumn, not long ago. As far as I can recall, it is the last nice picture I keep of her before her final illness. Nobody was allowed to take pictures of Ariel once she began to decay and become shabby (in fact there are some…; but all of them are sad and, of course, not shareable).
This one below is beautiful to my eyes (is lovely); so I post it in four different magnifications because I can’t decide which one is the most adequate, doing more justice to her very especial and serene glance. Seen this way, the pics look a little like a zoom into her smile, sweetness and youthful appearance (well past her mid thirties), and her enthralling look; as sweet as it was:
