the light is soft


the light is soft, originally uploaded by gawdessness.

there was a time
when

I made myself smaller than I was
hunching in
and
I tried not to be seen
noticed
remembered
my eyes squeezed shut
wishing, wishing, wishing
I was invisible
that was a dark time

now I stand tall
broad shoulders held high
chin higher
and imprint myself on the world
wrapping light around myself
to shine as brightly as I can

Good for you. Hiding yourself isn't a good thing to do. I still kind of do and regret it as I'm doing it.

You are beautiful and that is a lovely photo - well done for wrapping yourself in the light.

When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
