"Christina's World" by Andrew Wyeth

christina's world.jpg After you reach the age of 40, is there anywhere where you feel truly "at home"? Now I take my bearings and sense of belonging almost completely from family and close friends. Oh yes, and from books. All places and ways of doing things seem subtly foreign to me. The world I grew up in no longer exists. And, against my will, I can feel myself becoming a smiling, temporal exile in the world of the present. It's just that it's happening so much faster than I expected.
