December 25 – Photo – a present to yourself. Sift through all the photos of you from the past year. Choose one that best captures you; either who you are, or who you strive to be. Find the shot of you that is worth a thousand words. Share the image, who shot it, where, and what it best reveals about you. (Author: Tracey Clark)
I run from the camera. I really don’t want to see myself. So, not surprisingly, the only photo I have of myself from this past year is my school ID photo.
However, I did a workshop this summer with the Center for Digital Storytelling. I wrote a short script. It is a narrative about something important to me, my story. I had to gather artifacts, which turned out to be photos.
Since it is Christmas and I want to write a poem about this but I am a bit tired, I’m going to again post the film I made this summer about my mom and me. I think it says it all for now, with the hope of a poem later.
