Self Portrait: ‘Unanswered’

Self Portrait by Bonnie Rose Photography © 2013 All Rights Reserved |

I took today’s self portrait before breakfast while my thoughts were focused around the basic human need of interaction with others.  We were not put on this earth to be alone.  While I love my personal time away from the world if I had no one to share it with my life would be void and without purpose.  
I owe my fondest childhood memories, the stories that span across Europe, to my parents.  The good and bad days of the past have formed me into who I am today.  I have been told I got married as I was just a few months shy of turning twenty one.  When I met my husband at Uni I had that moment of clarity that we would spend the rest of our lives together.  Why wait years down the road to experience an inevitable life together.  I always wanted a family to experience a world of travel together like I had with my parents.  So we began our family and eventually found our way to return to Europe. 
Sometimes it can be hard to keep the lines of communication open.  Life can get busy and the world can push itself forward ahead in the priorities.  However sometimes it can be as simple as remembering to make sure that ‘you’ are plugged in.

    I love your self portraits! I need to do more. I did one session a while back when the sun was shining perfectly though my window. I’ll have to try another here soon!

    So true. We use our day dates to stay really connected. It got much harder after he joined the Marines. :(
