I spoke with my friend Rhonda on a Tuesday evening. While chatting, she brought up that she loved seeing the pictures. She mentioned that seeing them brought her a bit of peace and calmness. In that moment I realized I had more than brought someone into my world visually. They could feel through the images what I felt at the real time.
The following morning, unprompted, Kurt said similar, then added something. He loved that I wasn’t posting selfies! He vented for a few about how many he sees in his feed, that he didn’t get it, and was tired of seeing them.
Not to knock those who take selfies….but I hate them. I agree with Kurt. I’m tired of seeing them. Too many seem overly addicted to the need of having their face in every photo! I get showing off a new hairstyle, but every photo? Like look at me today? No thanks. I have seen enough of your face.
So, unless there is a story behind them, I won’t take one (and don’t want to see them). Honestly, I don’t like being in photos at all. Unless they’re candid shots, I don’t appear in many pictures (sort of like vampires having no reflection). Don’t ask me to pose either. That never ends well.
But my feet?
