Little baby

Dacă Eva tot are valenţe de viitoare fashonistă, m-am gândit să nu ar strica să accept varianta unui photo shooting, care va fi realizat în pragul sărbătorilor, iar Eva va apărea pe coperta revistei Baby din luna Decembrie. Pentru Unica am mai scris anii trecuţi de câteva ori iar propuneri de colaborare au mai fost. Am respins ideea sedinţelor foto pentru că mi se părea ceva mult prea extravagant, mai ales pentru copilul meu. Adică preferam să văd alţi prichindei defilând în timp ce erau fotografiaţi. Cu Eva am fost o dată la o sedinţă de genul, dar a fost un chin. Nu reuşeam sub nicio formă să o fac să stea cum îi spunea fotograful.

Apoi o să o duc la Teatrul Ţăndărică, să vedem dacă are vreo  treabă cu lumea scenică. Pentru că Alba ca Zăpada este una dintre preferatele ei, va avea şansa să joace în piesă. Sunt curioasă dacă i se va părea interesant, captivat, fiind ea acolo. Teatrul îi place, asta ştiu sigur. Dar îi place din perspectiva unui spectator. Acum inversăm rolurile.
În ultimile zile totul a fost numai o alergătură, n-am avut timp de niciunele, şi mereu am fost pe picior de plecare. Săptămâna asta am reuşit să citesc trei cărţi, lucru de care sunt mândră.

Orphan Train – Christina Baker Kline

Orphan Train is a gripping story of friendship and second chances from Christina Baker Kline, author of Bird in Hand and The Way Life Should Be.

Penobscot Indian Molly Ayer is close to “aging out” out of the foster care system. A community service position helping an elderly woman clean out her home is the only thing keeping Molly out of juvie and worse…

As she helps Vivian sort through her possessions and memories, Molly learns that she and Vivian aren’t as different as they seem to be. A young Irish immigrant orphaned in New York City, Vivian was put on a train to the Midwest with hundreds of other children whose destinies would be determined by luck and chance.

Molly discovers that she has the power to help Vivian find answers to mysteries that have haunted her for her entire life – answers that will ultimately free them both.

Rich in detail and epic in scope, Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline is a powerful novel of upheaval and resilience, of unexpected friendship, and of the secrets we carry that keep us from finding out who we are.
