A MUSE ZING

While I was away last week in Philadelphia
Experiencing some R&R&R&R&R&R…
(rest, relaxation, reflection, rejuvenation, refocusing, recharging)
My muse yanked my earlobe and whispered…
“Hey! While you’re doing all this “re” stuff…
Why don’t you re-do your blog photo—it stinks!”
Well! How dare she!
But then...
She wasn’t the only one who told me that…
A professional photographer did too.
The photographer? My cousin...
Who works in the photography department…
At Bucks County Community College.
“Ya know,” she said, “I love your blog, but that photo—yeesh!
“I can’t take looking at that grainy, pixilated photo anymore!
Please! Let me shoot you.”
And so she did and...
VOILA!
A new photo of me.
As for my muse…
Well, I did “re” her some…
But not too much…
Because sometimes muses must be kept in their places.
And to my cousin, Susan Kott, a big, "Thanks cuz!"
Please check out her book In the Can 
(yeah, it runs in the family)


Always, Em-Musing

Nice. But I always liked the one with the hat. Looks more like you.

Anne Gallagher said...

I'm sorry, did that come across as insulting. I didn't mean to.

Em-Musing said...

LOL! Not at all.

I liked the hat too, but I really like this new shot. Nice clarity and it still shows personality.
