In a new post created specifically for this challenge, share a selfie.
Although I used this image for my Gravatar for a little while, I still feel a bit awkward sharing it, although I really wanted to show my Flickr followers that I was in so much pain to the point of tears– and this was during the summer.
Because I’ve shown my daughter’s photography before, I thought I’d add this gutsy selfie she took of herself. Now Cimmorene had thought she’d doodled on her eye with a black marker, but I knew better. I found her quietly crying in her bedroom a little while before, and she said she’d hit her head on her loft bed. This is by no means her first black eye– after getting clocked in the face with a baseball bat wielded by a neighbor kid, she smiled for a photo that my father-in-law took… and then there were other accidents. She’s my tough right-hand-girl, all right.
