Le Vale Madre

I find fascinating some people's happy-go-lucky attitude.  For them, life is full of little hiccups, and not necessarily life-changing moments.  Don't get me wrong, I don't stress out over every little detail -- or do I? -- but I do appreciate the fact that life sometimes smacks you upside the head, and it's best to acknowledge its significance. 

For Ana Alvarado, pictured above, being booked by police officers makes for a great Facebook status update.  If it was me up there, I'd be shaking in my boots.  But people are different, and that's a good thing.  Over time, some people learn to laugh at their mistakes, while others laugh in the face of society, and authority right off the bat. 

Let's hope Ana makes something of herself.  Hell, she could be a productive citizen some day, an elected official even.  If that ever came to be, she would have the smiling mugshot act down pat.
