minä


My dear friend gave me a hat. Then I accidentally took a photo of myself, of the person I am. Sure I'm always snapping photos of myself, but they never quite capture who I am or how I feel. I'm not sure if other people see me this way, to me it's irrelevant, like most things.

That's me there, right above this small mass of text. Boyish, he says. I say, it's fine, it's me. Looking good, says she. I say, it's irrelevant.


Some things are done best madly. Like loving. (and maybe living too)

i feel like i'm stumbling upon an unfinished story of a one-woman show... perhaps a bit of a play yet to be completed? Or a memoir? but i feel like an audience of something important... on the precipice..

You look great. Just looking at the wordl directly to the eyes. With a sincere look. With a shy smile, and so much behind.
Lovely hat by the way.

Thanks for that real you photo.

looking good indeed, looking sophisticated, like the female lead of a 1960's movie.

I like the sentiment. I often find myself peering into photos of myself that others have taken to see what I find there. Who is that person? How did this other person see her and capture her?

I like this self-portrait because it feels honest. God knows the net is full of the other kind... ;)
