why do I blog?
blog, blog blog. I write. I take pictures. I like to talk, laugh, communicate, inspire, be inspired, journal, share, reach out and touch, meet new friends, learn, grow, expand, and challenge myself. That is what I will start doing tomorrow...AGAIN! Misty has extended an invitation for a self portrait challenge in photographs this time to be shared every Wednesday. I went looking thru my older files of self portraits and gathered them all into one place here on Flickr. I know that when I blog, it truly is a self portrait presented by stories and views inside my life, my home, my moments. I rarely edit my photos, yet wish I was more patient with Photoshop and all the wonderful artsy layers and filters available to me. I guess I prefer the organic rawness of a photograph that captures the unperfect moment that honestly is real life. So as I embrace my puffy eyes, saggy turkey neck, new curvy curves and thinning hair, I will continue to grow older and rounder, with or without you. Matt is always nearby, somehow capturing moments and views I am sometimes unaware of, and these are a few of my favorites.
