Self Portrait with a Digital Camera
Don't ask me why - here I am on some kind of countdown to my birthday, which is June 25th.
I took these photos yesterday in my dining room - they are a bit overexposed, but oh well.
It is really exciting to have such a significant birthday on the horizon. Sixty is definitely a transformational time - it feels to me like I am embarking on a new journey. I never thought that I would have this birthday without Tom here to celebrate with me. I remember my 50th so clearly and how excited he was to throw a big party and laugh and hug and.............
This birthday, I am having a very small, very special, very intimate dinner party on my patio. In attendance, 9 of the women who are and have been closest to me over the years. My friend Missy, who I have not physically seen since 1987 is coming from New Orleans - Joan is flying in from Florida. I have retained a personal chef to come to the house to cook a wonderful meal for us - good food, fabulous wine, magnificent company of beautiful women. This will be a birthday to savor and remember.
