Mommy dearest

What a sad picture. Alice looks totally uninvolved, as if she was sitting next to two strangers on a train while little Paulina looks like she's empty of feelings.

In their own way

Alice's hands say it all. Too bad she couldn't have reached out to Paulina a bit. What was that Tolstoy said about unhappy families?
