I see her before she sees me. I pause just outside the door, peering through the windows, observing and admiring her, completely unnoticed.
In this split second of seeing without being seen, I get to survey the situation. Is she deeply engrossed with a baby doll and a blanket? Is she bent low over a table, crayon in hand, masterpiece making? Is she huddled with a friend, weaving a story with little plastic people?
