When life gets to be too much and you start to feel like you're losing touch, a little self portrait session can do wonders - I put my camera on our picnic table, set to capture multiple self-portraits for 5 min., aimed at an old office chair near my son & his balloons - and this is what I got.
we both needed some hugs
...and some kisses
...and some laughs
...and then I remembered the camera
...until I got distracted by the birdies in the sky
