Photo – a present to yourself. Sift through all the photos of you from the past year. Choose one that best captures you; either who you are, or who you strive to be. Find the shot of you that is worth a thousand words. Share the image, who shot it, where, and what it best reveals about you. (from Tracey Clark of the amazing Shutter Sisters).
There aren’t many pictures of me this year. I hid from the camera, unable to love the face I saw there, the body so heavy with life, then loss. Of the few that exist, this is the only one I love. Without reservation. This is me beaming joy and love. I’m a little shiny, wearing my goofy grin and not a stitch of makeup, sitting next to the little girl I love most in the world.
I want there to be more of this me next year.
The me that’s not afraid to be seen.
