WORDLESS WEDNESDAY, DAY 10

DAY 10 of the Wego Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge: It's Wordless Wednesday (YAY!) and I'm to post my favorite picture of myself. I chose this photo for five reasons:
  1. It's a self-portrait 
  2. It was taken post-cancer and represents my "new" life
  3. It was shot at the beach (one of my favorite places!)
  4. It was taken on a day I was hanging out with my friend R., who has metastatic breast cancer. When I see this image, it reminds me of her. (R. is doing remarkably well despite having mets for many years. She is feeling terrific. BIG shout-out to R.!)
  5. It represents the mystery in meYou may have noticed that I'm rather shy about revealing who I am on my blog. That may seem strange since I'm certainly not shy about writing about breast cancer! But I find it more liberating to write from behind the shadows. Of course, this could change at any time. But that day is not today.

    1. I love the choice of the photo Renn, mostly I love the reasons you chose it. Many of us bloggers love to write but don't always want to expose our real identity and I can understand that... I was there in the past...

      Great post Renn :)

    2. Very intriguing, Renn. I like the picture very much. It somehow reminds me of being in Barcelona. ~Catherine

    5. Renn, I have wondered about you and #5. I have a feeling in the "real" world, we would be friends too. Who knows? Maybe we'll run into each other in our favorite place - the beach. Did I tell you, I met AnneMarie in DC this week? Surreal.
