Grateful #13

Is it wrong to be grateful for self portraits?

them, I'd have hardly any photos of me this year.  It's no one's
fault but my own.  I'm just as bad as everyone see a
camera & you duck.  I seem to be a little less inhibited when I
take the photo myself (plus, you can't see my outfit...which, as my
brother informed me, shows that I learned how to dress just like my
mother...and he didn't mean that as a compliment.)  Are the self
portraits perfect?  No.  But they do show a glimpse of me...a
progression since I started taking them this year.  A bit of the
real me...cold sores, freckles, puffy eyes & all.   (Good
thing you can't see the outfit I wore out in public...ah, my mom would
be so proud!)
