Self Portrait Tuesday

self portrait #2, kodak ls753

This is the very last installment of February's "All of Me" for
Self Portrait Tuesday.

The upcoming challenge for March is to document "time" through photos (document and observe physical changes in ourselves, create a discourse on identity, keep a visual diary of moods, etc.)

Therefore... for my last "part" in this month's installment, I chose my hair.

Someone recently told me I was too old to wear my hair in ponytails. Good thing I didn't pay attention. I'll be wearing them when my hair is long and gray (and perhaps some ribbons as well).

"You're only as old as you feel"... and I feel crazy young.

Ponytails, braids, messy buns...all a huge part of me and my wildly thick thirtysomething mane.

If you feel beautiful...who cares what anyone else thinks?

Wear it.

Do it.

Be it.

Work it.

Own it.

All of your parts...including your locks.


see some of the brave and beautiful souls of February's "all of me" pictures: week one, week two and week three.

Why else do we have long hair if not for play? I will be wearing my pig tails, braids, and crazy hair styles when it is all grey with you!

my favorite style is two braided pigtails with a bandana... yep, don't think i'll ever outgrow that one.

i haven't worn them in awhile because of work... thanks for reminding me that it's 'ok'.

I so needed to read this today...I saw a young woman at the grocery store with pink hair, and I was struck by a mad desire to do the same. I've always wanted to do something like that, but always made some excuse...but like you said "Be it. work it. own it." I will...whether that includes multicolored hair or just an appreciation of the curls I have already. Thanks for the post and the gorgeous picture.
