self portrait tuesday

It sometimes seems like my life without me would be the most accurate depiction of me - . Today’s choice of self portrait is inspired by the words of Henri Cartier-Bresson: “We always want to work with our brains, but we must be available and let our sensitivity direct us when we are looking at a work of art, as if we’re surfing on a wave. We must be open, open, open to what it gives us”. I like his wave metaphor; it makes me think of one of my great heroes, Virginia Woolf. Anyway, here it is, not necessarily all of me, but maybe a possible depiction of the emotional me on a self-portrait Tuesday?
