Your keen eye may have picked up that there is no Self-Portrait Sundays gallery for 2022. There are a few reasons for that. The website that used to post the weekly themes went quiet and, without that source of specific inspiration, I struggled. 2022 was also the year my dad died, and navigating the whole “this is life now without Dad” thing was a lot so creating anything at all was hard.
But I woke up on the second Sunday of 2023, after the holidays were officially over and it was time to get back to real life, and decided I wanted part of that to be getting back to doing my weekly self portraits, even if it was only doing fresh edits of images from previous years. I still have the tab open for the weekly themes of past years, and I may go back and revisit some I missed. I may do a lot of things. I don’t know what they’ll be. But at least I’ll be doing them.
A note: On August 15 we found out my husband has cancer. So… yeah, whatever self portraits I did and will be able to do after that date are little other than processing that.
