These days, with the proliferation of selfies, it seems there are fewer and fewer self-conscious people out there. I’m not big on selfies, although you might guess otherwise if you were to see all the videos I posted online in my heyday vlogging period.

I’m not afraid to smile for the camera, except for maybe at this particular moment (more on that later), but it wasn’t always like that.

caught on the clashing fronts

cold to hot to cold to here

in steady rhythm in spaces deep

and filled with all it needs

Perhaps I shall call it Stanley…looks like a Stanley to me. Peace and love my friends and Happy Sunday. Hope it’s calm and filled with peace for you.
