1/52 – Through the Looking Glass


Here is my first of 52 portraits… 2016 the year I turn 60… the year I embrace my priestess power… embarking on personal recovery through art journaling, self portraits, spiritual studies, emotional accountability, creative messiness, self-love and being open to the unknown. Meghan aka Starfire delving into her deep magic…. this portrait is me sans makeup, sans photographic editing, sans artifice… showing my shadow side and seeing the light and dark as one face.



I am also seeing myself “through the looking-glass”… perhaps there is a reason that the book Alice in Wonderland terrified me as a child… perhaps I can allow my world to be topsy-turvy this year.

This year in #52portraits I am not committing to a certain camera, or a certain day of the week to post, but I AM committing to follow each prompt each week… I am also allowing myself to change my mind anytime I want. 😉

    52 weeks is a long time. It’s good to have the option to change your mind. Fun project, though.

      An out is what keeps me going… my inner little girl doesn’t like to HAVE to do anything, lol. I committed to a photo a day in 2011 so I know I have staying power in there somewhere. 🙂
