Seven Million Wonders

"There are no seven wonders in the eyes of a child. There are seven million." --Walt Streightiff

My daughter takes portaits of herself, as if she's trying to fathom who she is, how she appears to the world. "Your daughter is strange," she noted on seeing this picture. Strange and wonderful.


  1. don't we all "take" self portraits of ourselves - although not all are with a camera

    I can't think of two better ways to be - strange and wonderful!!!

    when my daughter was your daughter's age she wore a button that stated 'why be normal?"\' why indeed!!

    by the way, at 54, most of the time I think I'm still trying to fathom who I am although it is rare now that I'm overly concerned about how I appear to the world.... as em's motto may have been 'why be normal' I have embraced popeye's motto 'I yam what I yam'

    by the way I love the self portrait!



  2. mouse, why be normal indeed! I love that. And thanks for reminding me of Popeye's wisdom. My dad used to say that thing all the time. "I yam what I yam."
