Invisible presence

If an image is supposedly worth a thousand words, how about showing what does the abused phrase 'I am always there for you' means?

This is another Christmas gift for my god-daughter: while she is still too young to wear it, it will wait for her hanging on a Christmas tree as an ornament. There's a little girl dressed as a ballerina on the photo, surrounded by 2 shadows. That immediately made me think of being someplace, close enough, without actually being seen. Caring, being protective but (unfortunately) from far away.

And so off I went, to do one of my favorite 'thematic' gifts.

As usual, after having been too sweet & romantic, I start feeling 'guilty', so let me inject a healthy dose of cynicism right away: I have always found it interesting how many proverbs on the same subject totally contradict one another. Take "Absence makes the heart grow fonder' vs. "Out of sight, out of mind" for example. The outcome of one's absence would depend on many factors, personality being one of the most important of them all.

Dear Camille, please know: I am always there for you (invisibly) and once I will reappear from the thin air, I will take you for your first ride on the swings!
