In the last iteration of my "101 in 1001" goals, I wanted to take and share more pictures (especially with distant family). A cell phone that takes pictures and lets me email/post them immediately helped me succeed with that. But if we still lived in the days of having to bring a camera, remembering to take a picture, and then getting film developed? I would have FAILED.

The next level of that goal is on the list now: let people take more pictures of me, and share those too. It's no secret that I hate having my picture taken. Sure, it's distressing that I look more and more like my father every year, but I've never been under the illusion that I'm a great beauty. It really boils down to being ferociously uncomfortable with being on display, either in life or in pictures. (Somehow, performing is different. I don't understand why.) But then I read a story somebody posted about somebody else on Facebook, and my family agreed with the premise: if something horrible and final were to happen to me, they wouldn't have any pictures of me. at. all.

I've always worked hard to participate in the lives of my kids...to be present and active. So now I'm going to let the visual chronicles of that match the memories. The goal is to really make sure to share at least one photo of me each month of the next 1001 days (give or take), whether it's the much-maligned selfie, a picture I don't run away from, or whatever.
