Christmas and Reverb 25

Hi all! I hope you had an excellent Christmas! I turned off the computer for more than 24 hours, and had a glorious one myself. Highlights included something called “bubble bread,” a catnip toy frenzy with the local kitten, a game of Scrabble at which I lost miserably, a beautiful new jacket from The Fairies’ Pyjamas, and many hugs and friendly people. The only real low point of the day came when I said in passing, while talking about something vaguely related over Christmas dinner that microwaves run on nuclear energy. There was a long silence after that–it turns out, they don’t. Shame ensues.

Ok, back to reverb:

Choose one that best captures you; either who you are, or who you strive to be. Find the shot of you that is worth a thousand words. Share the image, who shot it, where, and what it best reveals about you.

Me in the dressing room mirror in North Bay

This is me in the only dressing room I’ve ever been assigned, at the Capitol Theatre in North Bay, before my reading at Circus Wonderland. It’s me being “Wow, I’m a rock star, I have a dressing room” but also very obviously all alone, since I had to take the picture of myself in the mirror (There were, technically, a couple fellows asleep on the floor behind me, but I can’t really count us as being “together.”)

It’s me being wowed by one of the little flashes of glamour in the writing world as I know it, enjoying myself and yet not particularly enjoying the loneliness, longing for friends (and not just to take the picture). It’s interesting, this picture, and I don’t know exactly what it means, but definitely something, I think.
