Do I know You, Lady?

Edge of the Frame

 Prompt: We often capture strangers in photos we take in public. Open your photo library, and stop at the first picture that features a person you don’t know. Now tell the story of that person.




My story is about  the person clicking the pic.  

Who is she?

I have lived with her from the beginning of time as I know it on earth… yet do I know her? 

How often she surprises me……

she does things I would never think she would

she thinks thoughts I  never thought she would 

she wears masks I never thought she needed

she keeps secrets I never thought she would

she has desires I never thought she would

she loves in a way I never thought she could

she hurts and gets hurt in way I never thought she would

she gets moved by things and people I never thought she would be

she annoys and gets annoyed by things I never thought she would 

she reacts and interacts in ways I never thought she would 

she works harder than I thought she would

she laughs more than I thought she could

she sometimes cries more than I think she should

she balances more than I thought she could


I hope to unravel more of the mysteries in that head…. 

know her better than I know her now. 

Understand her more than I do now. 

“She” is my best friend after all…. for life. 

As “the person in the pic ” is “Me”! 

A stranger in My Mirror….?

    Very candid and refreshing….I also sometimes experience an eerie feeling of watching myself … out of body experience…..

    Yes…being our own best friend, and sometimes our own parent, is one of the best things we can do for ourselves. I often say to myself when I am pushing myself too hard, or angry at myself for some mistake, “Now if you were your own mother (or best friend) what would you say to yourself?” It gentles against being too hard on myself. Good post.
