A great and powerful sadness

1 of 6 in a new series on my brother Henry.
His mental illness includes strong, brief waves of emotion. I snapped this in the car, as we stopped at a light. He was telling me about someone who bought a car with tinted windows, and suddenly began to cry. By the time the light changed, he'd recovered. I have no idea what brought it on.

Such a deep expression and character.... Very moving. I see so many people with different disabled pb lately i discover a world of mystery that speaks another language but expressions, just like this one you caught, are the link left to try to approach their lost island... Very strong portrait, so real & human, it's overwhelming...
