Self-portrait 11/52

“If you have never lost your sanity, then you have never been in love.”

 

My week 11 of 52 self portrait.  I decided to partake in this weeks ‘Self Portrait Sunday’ event with ‘The Art of Self Portraiture’ community over on G+, the theme is ‘Love’.

 

This photo is lyrically inspired by the song ‘In Boxes by Aurora’, I’ve been wanting to do a photo to this song for a few years now. If you haven’t heard it, give it a listen, it’s a bit twisted… I like twisted. 😉

Some of the lyrics:

“Here I am still lonely with the souvenirs
I would kill for some company
Temporarily
I did once have a lover only kept his hands
They can dance and play the songs for me
Play until I sleep”

 

What’s this image have to do with love?  Well… I’m a fan of hands and the way they can make you feel. I’ve often told my husband that when he dies, or when I kill him… I’m keeping his hands. The man has magic fingers, but even aside from the many sexual pleasures they provide, they offer a sense of intimacy that I’ll never tire of, a closeness that even in silence can be felt with something as simple as putting his hand in mine. Sigh… (let me have my girl moment here).  Hand holding is where it’s at!  So much so that when I had my friend with benefits (when I was single),  hand holding was on my list of no-no’s.  It’s just too….intimate and caring, don’t care about me, just do me! Hee… I clearly have issues!

 

This….right here:

“Have you ever really held the hand of someone you love? Not just in passing, a loose link between you – but truly clasped, with the pulses of your wrists beating together and your fingers mapping the knuckles and nails like a cartographer learning a country by heart?”
― Jodi Picoult

 

On a lighter note, his hands belong to me, I’m keeping them…forever!

Like always, all of my images can be seen bigger on Flickr.  If you follow me on Instagram, I’ll be posting the SOOC (straight out of camera) version there, flaws and all.

Q & A… Sort of

I didn’t expect the video to be so long when I started talking.   Next time I’ll be sure to tackle one question at a time, keeping it short and simple.   Feel free to turn this into a drinking game, every time I swear or say “um” you should take a swig of something, you’ll be toasted by the end. I’ll try to be mindful of that next time too. I’m learning as I go.

Self-portrait 10/52

 

I’ve had this song, ‘Oh Ms. Believer, by Twenty One Pilots’ stuck in my head for the past week. I kind of love it and have been overplaying the fuck out of it.  Felt like I needed an image to go with it.

 

Happy to say I’ve made it 10 weeks into this self-portrait challenge and haven’t wanted to quit yet, that’s saying a lot. Only 42 more weeks to go!   Damn, that sounds overwhelming when I say it out loud.  I’ll just stop saying it out loud I guess.  Week 10, done!

Self-portrait 9/52

 

“Health is not valued till sickness comes.” – Thomas Fuller

 

Here is my week 9 photo, a fair representation of how I felt earlier this week.  I’m dying, start planning my funeral!  I might be a bit over dramatic sometimes, just a little.   My kids were also sick, they handled it way better than I did.  I’m happy to say that everyone is back to 100%, and last night was a really good night in comparison to the rest of the week. Onward!
