My father used to tell me that I looked so much like Isabella Rossellini; I would not believe him or at least I would not let myself see it. But hearing him say it, used to make me feel so special and happy, I was not accustomed to feeling pretty.

When I saw the daily prompt with the word doppelgรคnger, I dug up an old picture of me and found an old picture of Isabella to put them side by side, just to see. I showed them to my son and told him about what his grandfather used to tell me and he agreed. I’m not sure if he agreed just to make me feel good. Thinking of how my father used to say such nice things to me makes me miss him so much.
