3 Words | Are You OK?

Are You OK? (Art Photo by Paul Cupido – Danziger Gallery – NY Times Nov 25 2020)

In a glimpse I saw this image, when royalty watchers on television tonight where discussing the break-away from Buckingham Palace of Meghan and Harry. It illustrated an article on the opinion pages of the New York Times back in November, written by Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, in which she spoke of her miscarriage of the baby succeeding their firstborn Archie. She broke the silence on a delicate subject doing so, and this was briefly mentioned today.

It struck me as a beautiful image, so I looked it up.

It is an art photo by Dutch photographer Paul Cupido, used to illustrate the article. Cupido has a great Instagram account, showing a small but poignant portfolio, images expressing mystery and longing.

You can read the full article here, but one powerful insight Meghan shares is:

You don’t see on the outside what’s going on on the inside most of the time, and if you want to reach out to somebody and maybe don’t know how, just start with asking the simple question: are you OK?

It did her a world of good.
