Panama 2017: Minga at Christmas

Minga’s eldest daughter Ana sent me this pic of Minga at Christmas. I’m quite sure that Ana, a skilled seamstress, made Minga’s dress. I think she looks beautiful.

Minga wears tinted glasses because of her failed cataract surgery, which left one eye sensitive to light. She’s afraid to let them touch her other eye, which also has a cataract and is quite cloudy, or to allow the surgeon to attempt a repair of the failed one. She copes by wearing glasses.

  1. for Phyllis: She has always been a very feminine woman who likes to look nice — hard for her in the early years when her clothing was little more than rags.
