Another self portrait, this time just a section of my face with my own words from my poem Just Don’t

I get a real bee in my bonnet when people don’t listen to what I say but just what they fear/hope/think I am saying because they put me in a box and labelled me up so they don’t have to listen. Sorry. I am getting off my soap box now. LOL

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
