Yep. That’s me. Caught on camera by my daughter who wants to be a photographer one day. This is her big debut.
I’ll admit, it’s not the most incredible picture of me. It’s not a polished head shot or a writer-in-action shot or even a picture of me “working.” But here’s the thing: my child took this photo. When I look at it, I can see myself through her eyes, and that makes me feel something. Something good.
Here’s the other thing: I’m always working. At my desk, driving the car, shampooing my hair, pushing the grocery cart (and no one wants a picture of that). I’m always thinking about words and jigsawing them around in my brain to make them work. For me, my clients and their audience.
And the best words? Those that make me feel something, like my daughter’s photo.
Clients say it best.
