Selfies With New Phone

firstpicHere’s the first picture I took with my new camera phone.

Pretty sad, eh? The second picture was of my finger, which I have redacted.

So I turned the lens away from myself (always a good idea) and took this. The big thing hanging off my shadow’s arm is not, believe it or not, my purse; it’s a sack o’ stuff I was taking to Mom’s.

It’s a picture of my shadow self. Is it Jungians who’ll get that pitiful joke or Freudians? Jungians, I think.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      I hear ya! I tried to get my husband to take my pic with the phone, and he couldn’t get it to take. It does take a very specific and particular touch. Makes me miss having a mechanical button to press.
