February photo challenge: 14th Feb, Heart

This drawing is from one of my father’s sketch books.  You’ll see that the woman in his heart thought bubble is not my mother (see entry for 7th February).  Perhaps she’s the woman who was posing in the art class.  Perhaps she’s the generic woman that every soldier thinks about in the desert, standing next to a cactus, holding a very big gun.
