A window for Rara

20140614-114528-42328499.jpgThis was a challenging week for me in a lot of ways. Fortunately it ended with some good news and a few opportunities to brighten the days of other people I encountered.

I recently received a letter from Rara, who is still incarcerated awaiting her day in court. In her letter she mentioned that she has a long, thin rectangular window in her cell that looks out onto an interior hallway of drywall and insulation. On the other side of the hallway is an opaque window that is rumored to face outside. The only observable evidence is that the window changes color in a way that could reflect the sun’s movement through the course of the day.

I was writing her a return letter and had to draw her her own window. I hope it brings her and her cellies (roommates) a smile.
