Self-portrait challenge: Be not afraid....

Inspired by one of my favorite project web sites, Self-Portrait Challenge, I decided to undertake the October photography challenge: Look beyond the surface of your life, dig into your imperfect self and reveal it to us. I want to see the down and dirty you, the messy, gross and ugly you, the side of yourself that you always try to hide, give us some insight into your dreadful secrets. Be not afraid!

This is the tired, jaded, smeared, melancholy, grubby, dull, sweaty, disheveled, sluggish, murky Me.
She screens her calls.
She has a Xanax hangover.
She naps twice in one day.
She doesn’t wash her face before she goes to bed.
She hasn’t done dishes or taken out trash in a week.
She doesn’t cry from missing anyone, not even him.
She knows a lot of things she will never tell.


  1. The photo goes perfectly with this.

  2. This was great:) I loved it, the photo went along so well with all that you wrote.

  3. You have the kind of face they used to put on cherubs in oil paintings.

    This is an interesting topic, I've thought of joining in on it, too...

  4. I love that.

    You know what they say, a rose is a rose.

  5. Bitch...wash your dishes. :) I love ya baby. (And I miss you times a million!)
