I’ve been reading so many blogs lately.
Blogs of ladies who sparkle. Blogs of women who rock. Political blogs, arty blogs, tarot blogs, kerrazy blogs.
And those bloggers… they all take selfies!
Not me though. Is it because I’m British? Is it because I’m hideously ugly? Is it because I don’t have one of those phones with a camera on both sides? Is it because I’m not 15?
Nope, it’s because I’ve never really thought of it.
So, in the spirit of The Fool – my card for the day – and as a woman who (re)began The Artist’s Way this morning and as a woman who just cut her hair off five minutes ago (and I was soooo determined to get to shoulder length this time) and as a woman who has just come on her period and bled on the sofa , I give you…
My first selfie!
Here it is.
Oh gosh I’m shy and embarrassed now.
Do you know how many goes it took to get one that didn’t make me look like my face was blue?
Does Rihanna take that many?
I mean it’s not my first ever selfie it’s just the first one I’ve taken for a blog or whatever.
Is it still a selfie if you take it on your computer?
Was I supposed to put make-up on?
Is this a stupid blog post?
Jesus Beth how can you be The Fool if you keep putting it off?
There I did it.
The end 🙂 Now where’s that Magician…
I’m a 30-something writer, artist, tarot reader, and perpetual explorer of the space between thought, feeling, and action.
I believe that spirituality and ritual are for everybody. I’m about the journey, in all of its messy, non-linear, chaotic iterations. I am excited by anticapitalist business and living with my whole entire self present. I use tarot cards to bring forth hidden truth, and ritual to affirm my commitment, over and over, to my ever-shifting path.
