seeing one’s self in photos

A friend of mine took some pictures of me the other day, and I really had a moment. It wasn’t that they’re bad photos…they’re great. But in them, I see wrinkles I didn’t have, freckles that are turning into age spots, and hair that may (and only may) be turning gray.

Looking at the photos, the person there is much more settled, much more calm and self-assured, than I ever feel on a day to day basis. And a hell of a lot older.
