This is intimidating and fun too. You do know that I write my soul out on this space; but I have never shared a photo of me directly. I have shared my feet, my shadow, my spirit, but not the real me.
I am reproducing those here. But also sharing something new. Keep scrolling.
This below, is a portrait of me drawn by none other than my sweet little child when he was 6. One day he was in an artistic spree and was making portraits. The one he did of cousin Zaa was outstanding and I wanted one stunning portrait of me too. I asked for one, and he asked me to pose for him. And voila! This is how his nimble fingers drew me. And he looked so proud after he drew it. I just had to hide my dissapointment of how grumpy I looked
And the next photo is the only real photo I am ready to share with the entire me visible. Already had it in another post two days ago and I kinda like the look of this one. Why? One: I am still a bit vague and I managed to bring those photo effects, Two: I am in my element when I am on that beast and in control of my destination (I hate, loathe, abhor, detest [and all words that mean the same] being the passenger).
I know I cheated a bit. But then again, that’s my policy on this blog when it comes to sharing of my identity.
I am writing as part of Blog Everyday in May Challenge – it’s
