The Solitude of Shadows, Quito

While finally (!) plugging away a bit on my manuscript today I was reminded of this image, a nun enjoying the solitude of shadows just a few meters away from the frenzied activity of Quito’s central Plaza de la Independencia, or Plaza Grande.

I mostly remember how deliberate and graceful her walk was, in brilliant contrast to the commotion of commerce just a few feet away. If she noticed me, she hid it well.
