Focus On Life: Week One Self Portrait

 Week One: Self Portrait

I captured 
                this photo
                              on the way to Easter Dinner
        years ago
                                I'm the one
        wearing jewelry
                                my first handcrafted earrings


       you see me 
in a chair
behind the camera
       the one I love
for taking
       light & beauty
without edits
that crazy camcorder

does it all
