If the beloved is everywhere,  The lover is a veil… 
– Rumi

I have chosen, in this self-portrait to identify with women who wear the veil. In this detail of Caregiver and Chador (digital composite) there is more hidden than seen; it is unclear whether the subject feels protected or oppressed. Perhaps it is a little of both.
