Self-portrait with ring




I am particularly enamored of my iPhone's photographic capabilities (Hipstamatic, Instagram, Camerabag) hence the somewhat self-indulgent, melancholy Cindy Sherman-inspired shot.

Meanwhile, it is pleasantly misty and grey at 7am in the canyon. Have a very happy Sunday wherever you are in the world.

I am an optimist. It does not seem too much use being anything else. -- Winston Churchill

You look absolutely lovely. I adore that picture. Makes me think of Laurel Canyon in 1972. And Churchill was damn right, as he was about so much. My best and favourite, which I use every day, is the one he said at the height of the war, when it was not going well: Keep Buggering On. KBO, KBO, the old fella used to shout. And now, so do I. x

It is not self-indulgent to take a self-portrait. I think it's brave. Sometimes we need a photograph to catch our own image for our own contemplation. I find, especially during stressful times, we alter our image of who we are entirely inside our head to our own detriment. A photograph gives us a stilled moment amidst impermanence. Sharing the photograph gives us witnesses to our life. We need witnesses. You look beautiful and sad.
