I see the most comfortable me, with a smile that I mostly only see in the mirror. Occasionally a photo gets taken when I’m unaware and laughing comfortably with my friends – I might see this smile there, but in general this smile I only see in the mirror.
I’m sure that other people see this genuine real smile every day, but for some weird reason when a camera is pointing in my face my smile doesn’t look as relaxed and as comfortable as the one I have come to know so well. I have a definite ‘camera face’ that can only be described as being a bit gammy!
What do I see when I look in the mirror?
All the many facets that make up my being. I see all of my memories and experiences. I see my friends and family. I see the things that have hurt me. I see hope and desire. I see me.
Through these eyes I do not only see,
Through these eyes, I interpret me
