My Smiley Face by myownself My Smiley Face by myownself
Life is a tragedy for those who feel, but a comedy to those who think
-Horace

My scar is over a year old now. I bought a two-piece swimming suit for us last week.

This is great. The world tries to make things perfect and sterile. And if you're not then they put you down for it. To me there is no life in that, no true feelings. This has to be one of the best pictures I've seen in a long time.

P.S. I have two huge scars like this and wear them as a badge of honor as if to lay on deaths door step and say, "no I'm not ready yet."

I love this picture. Especially because you've baught a two piece.
I have about an 8 inch scar up my left forearm, I wont wear short sleeves, because it looks as though I tried to do something, I didnt. I really love the fact that you're gonna not necessarily "showing yours off" but put it out there.
I love this. -fave-

great impact. at first, the scar is a reminder of a bad experience, and when i saw the second frame it just made me smile and spit a little.. it was great.

I find scars to be so interesting. and not in the "i cut myself" way, but I love the stories behind them.
I love your gallery, by the way.

This is awesome. What to say else ? The more I see your photographs, the more impressed I am by the quality of the external look you have on yourself, and, at the same time, the "detached tenderness" in it. I'm not sure I'm clear but that's the best I can find to explain :)

I have scars all up the sides of both my theighs..from surgury a few years ago. I am always so self concious about them..I am embarased by the scars and so I don't wear any skirts or shorts that could reveal them. Your courage and feel of selfworth and beauty inspires me, and makes me feel that having a scar isn't such a bad thing. Thank you for showing me that it's nothing to be ashamed of. Thank you. :hug:

as a owner of many scars
this piece touched me
so much sadness in the picture. yet so much strenght and inspiration in the words.
together. a powerful and thoughtful piece.

was it self inflicted, or medical?
