The Self We See

How do we define ourselves? Is it by our jobs, our affiliations, our family? Or is it something we see when we look in the mirror? Or when we look inside ourselves?

This week’s prompt for Single Frame Stories is “Self”. I have decided that this week I’m going to do more than one photo of my interpretation of Self. I don’t think I can truly show myself as I see me with a single picture. So I plan on having more than one entry this week.

This version is the Self I would like to be – elegant, sophisticated, beautiful.

1 Self

No, I would never believe this to be how I truly define myself. But it’s a version I can aspire to become. And dream of being when I drift off to sleep, a small sigh escaping my perfectly curved lips.

    You are many of all words of self, elegant, beautyful, sophisticated, intelligent, creative, charming and on and one. You are above all a 3 dimensional being playing in a one dimensional landscape. How can we not be drawn to you Peep? You are an amazing woman and I am glad I found your driveway on the Information Super Highway!

      Awww thank you so much, Cao xoxo I’m blushing again! But I’m so glad we stumbled over one another. Maybe we need to switch to flats instead of heels? 😉
