Loosened from the mud, I find myself floating in a world of possibility.

So can you.

54 more than two decades of change

At our Valentine's Day dinner, an old friend of mine surprised me with this photo. It was taken when I was 18, more than 23 years ago. How things change.

This week was all about trying self-portraits. It is a difficult and gut-wrenching process for me. Still emotionally wounded and hurting from my trip to Florida, all I see in these photos of myself is my mother, and sometime my sister. I'm more like than I would like to be - and not in just physical ways.


  1. I haven't met the women in your family. I haven't met them except through you sharing your thoughts and feelings. What I see, is a beautiful women...perhaps a little sad, but with a shining heart. A heart of love.

    1. Yes, I'm a bit sad these days. When the warm weather hit this weekend (30s is warm to me!) I realized that the cold weather also had me down. You are someone that has pointed this out to me every stinking year. I thank you for your kind words!
