Over at Razmataz, it is Photo Challenge Day! Self-Portrait.
I have a photo that I keep in my wallet, to glance at on those days when I am feeling less than perky. When I am looking the whole of my 55 years. Or when someone (usually a teenager) asks, "What did you look like when you were young?"....LOL I whip out this photo, and they gasp, and then look straight into my face looking for the similarities. Yes, the shell has changed, but it is me! I have embraced every line and wrinkle and blotch, and no I wouldn't want to return to that time. Not even once. I lived this current face, and it has been a wonderful life. But sometimes we need a reminder of where we once were. In my will there are instructions. You know how at some funeral's they usually have a blow-up photo of the departed? Well, I want two. One of me at the time of my passing (and I hope I am a ripe old lady of 84) and this photo. Just so folks will stop and think. And what I am hoping they will think is: Wow, she was a hotty!....LOL
