"I am large. I contain multitudes." - Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

I saw this shot. And it brought me back to when my Mamacakes would teach me to float in the village pool when I was young. How she coaxed me to drop my ears into the water and assured me that water wouldn't seep into them.
I remember her holding my back ever so lightly, then slowly letting go of my back.
And I'd float for a bit, with ears submerged. Mayang's round smiling face gazing at Mama. Mama smiling right back at me.
This is the stuff of my life. My precious, grace-drenched life.
