This is me – Susan. This is how I look pretty much all of the time. A little tired, more or less in style (well, probably on the less side), reddish hair, one eye a little smaller than the other, and a smile. The smile probably defines me as much as the tiredness. I’m working on that last, though.
I’m retired – taught 7th-grade language arts – the last of my 25+ jobs. (That’s another post.) They all had a common thread, however – pictures. I’ve been taking pictures since I was a kid. It wasn’t until I turned to photography seriously, and then photo collage, that I realized that I had always been taking pictures.
Without me and my Brownie Kodak, we wouldn’t have pictures of our Christmases when we were little, or our vacations (there weren’t many of those), or relatives. So actually, I was documenting more than just taking pretty photos.
I continue to document just about everything which drives my family nuts sometimes. But I’m making the memories we’ll look back on – I’m turning the raw material into stories. And I’m sticking with that story – because it’s true.
