The Dredge & The Snail, Oceanside Carlsbad California
Things go well enough if you let them. The problem with a family event is that everyone takes all these pictures. Suddenly I am confronted with multiple images of myself that I'd rather not see. What a terrible thing. I'd rather not see myself at all. I wonder if there is a correlation between contentment and how often one has to visually observe oneself. I can only imagine people might be better off if they never saw themselves, could just keep going imagining how they look by how they feel, not the other way around. It sounds a little goofy maybe, but damn if it doesn't strike me.
