Her mind departed. Grandma's still here.
BackstoryThis is a tribute to my grandmother Digna Santos (born in January 1906, Dominican Republic).
Even though her memories went traveling somewhere far away sometime ago, at age 106, she is still alive and physically rather healthy (the worst she's ever had is a cold). This photograph was taken 3 years ago. I was so lucky to be able to capture one of those rare moments of sudden witty awareness. I love to see how she teased me and mimicked how I tried to chase her attention with my camera as if trying to say: "I don't know who you are, but if you think I don't know what you're up to, well, I have news for you".
I don't know how long more she will stay with us, but I want the world to know that she's still here and that I adore her.
