About "Waiting" 

I really liked the original photo for this, which I saw in an old National Geographic magazine. 

It was a photo of a mother and child living in poverty. It seemed to me that they were so calm, quiet -- and tired, as if were waiting for either someone to rescue them from their situation or for it all to finally end somehow. I can identify with that.
