I haven’t taken as many selfies as I used to, mostly because I got sick of looking at myself. I felt ugly. Afraid of being seen. Lately, though, I’ve been turning the lens back on myself. Exploring the intricacies of my face.
I look older now. I’m not used to seeing the laugh lines. I like the way they frame my mouth, calling attention to every word I speak. Every sound. I would never want to erase them. In fact, I’m glad they’ve finally made themselves known. Prominent.
Let the sunshine in.
