The piece that touched me the most this week was the The Picture by Nawal al-Saadawi. It talked about the desire of the young girl to have a connection with her father and a different kind of relationship. I could totally relate to the way al-Saadawi put her words together and the way she described the father as well. I have a close connection with my father and I really look up to him in so many ways. Unfortunately I am unable to see him, so I miss him all the time. It was beautiful the way she spoke about her father in such an adoring way, and I really enjoyed it. I also thought that in such a short amount of text, the author was able to evolve the young girl from innocence and having that shattered and changed by the end of the story. Also the way she foiled the maid and the daughter was magnificent!
