Self Portrait Tuesday / by Christina Rosalie

I am standing at the window by my desk. When I hung them, the curtains were too long, so I cut them. Because I didn't hem them, the bottom edges are frayed. Bean has just discoverd them and is enthusiastically tugging on them while trying to climb my leg. I hold the camera out and snap a picture. This is it. Then I scoop Bean up, and tickle his tummy until he lets out a delighted peel of laughter, then set him down beside my desk. I download the picture, and am surprised by it. Rebel? Maybe. More likely: sincere, serious, intense, determined, pensive, thoughtful.
