Essays. Meanderings and mutterings. Lots of photos of our cat. Counting coup on fifty years existence.

Hm. Begs an existential question: is the subject you, or the mirror? :)
Good answer. One could get quite deep about images of images here.This photo reminds me vaguely of an actress (b&w film between the wars) whose name will come to me at 4am next Tuesday.
I like this, Zhoen. The seriousness of your face. Your eyes look to be the color of your shirt. The one shining little drop earring. It's a good study.
Udge,When you do, let me know. Or should I just set the alarm?lj, Thanks. One of the few of myself that feel right.
What it reminds me of is a Vermeer painting. One in particular, though I can't quite bring it to my mind. It has the same serene, luminous quality as this. It's a beautiful young woman gravely going about her work.Such a wonderful face. Thank you for this, Zhoen.
I'm enjoying matching you in with the child opposite.It's really good to be able to put a grown-up face to you, and it's a fine one too.With something of the Gwen John self-portrait about it?http://andrejkoymasky.com/liv/fam/bioj2/john08.jpg
As direct and unflinching as the girl on the motorcycle...perhaps, more ambivalent about the costs of remaining vulnerable...still self-confident.
Girl on the motorcycle is not me. She just appealed deeply, and resonantly. I was never that confident at that age. I have never been on a motorcycle.I'm not quite old enough to have been her, either.
I thought that the motorcycle girl was a childhood photo of the grandmother from Pi.
Ah, now that is possible...
