If not you, then who?

There have been many times in my life when I shy away from doing creative projects because I think things like:Who am I to do this?I think because I don't have the background, credentials or track-record to start working towards a particular vision, that I shouldn't go for it.I think that there are other people in this world more "qualified" to do the work....more

My Good Side

Today's NaBloPoMo topic starter is the question: Do you think one side of your face photographs better than another? My answer is a resounding yes! About 15 years ago, I started noticing that in some photos, one of my eyes looked "wonky." When holding a pose for the camera, we all tend to "freeze" and try not to blink before the shutter goes off so we don't wind up with pictures with our eyes closed. But I noticed one eye consistently seemed to be too wide open and thus "wonky."...more

This Body-shaming Segment Brought to You by Your Man

"Trease, if you gain weight, I'm leaving you. If you ever have to start buying your clothes from there, I'm gone." I don't remember the exact date that my ex said those words to me, but the year was 1993 and we were not far from the store Ample Duds in Denver. It is a store for plus-size women and before I moved to Denver, I had never heard of it. We were out and about looking for furniture and it just happened to be in the area we were in. When he said that to me, I remember giving him the absolute coldest stare....more
