Because of Resa, at graffitiglam.wordpress.com
I took my second “selfie.” The first one was for the cover of my book. Anyway, Resa and I were writing to each other about how women feel that they have to hide, as they age. That they feel bad about themselves. She did a wonderful post on a Vera Wang wedding dress, colored by street artists. I told her to put the dress on, take her picture, and post it. She said something about being too old (she’s actually young). I said that if I lived closer I would put it on (because I am old) and she could take my picture. Unfortunately, I live in the US and she lives in Canada. But what she wrote made me think. Two days ago I asked Melanie to delete a photo I texted to her of Justin’s graduation…because I’m in the picture. She understood and erased it because she doesn’t like to have her picture take either. That’s wrong.
So, this morning, before I went grocery shopping, I took my picture. Here it is. I don’t know if I’ll ever take another one, but this one is for Resa. ❤
I couldn’t figure out how to take my picture unless it was in the mirror, so I did the best I could. And yes, that is a Superman T-Shirt.
