So.... one day I realized when removing my head scarf from the night before, that I look rather 'regal' with this thing on. This very thing that I've worn since childhood (don't forget your HEAD RAG!!); this very thing that I see women sport on the regular thinking I would never dare try....
I took it a little further and added some sparkles from crafting down my forehead/third eye and added a touch of lip stick.
And Queen Makeda arrived. I'm not real fond of photos of myself, especially when I try taking a 'selfie' with a full scale DSLR (I don't own a smart phone), but here, I feel.... pretty.
Someone told me I looked like Maya Angelou.
I replied: "AND STILL I RISE." :-)
