Long long time ago I met a stranger in a gallery reading art books.

I had to introduce myself as there was something so special about her that I could not take my eyes off her

Her name was Lisa. She admitted that her life long dream was to have a painting of her.

Well, I had my camera with me so the least I could do to make her dream come true - was to take a picture of her.

I sent it to her and she told me that she met this painter by the name of Leonardo and that she came up with some sort of a plan...

I never heard from her since then and I still wonder if her dream came true.
