Reveal Thyself! (Or Not. Whatever makes you happy. Life is short.)

On Election Day in the US, we did a fun thread where Shakers shared pictures of themselves after voting. It was great to be able to put faces with so many familiar names, not just for me, but for the other contributors and mods and members of the community.

So I thought I'd open a thread in which people who are so inclined (and no one should feel obliged!) can share photos of themselves.

And, of course, since many of us have reasons to stay anonymous, or are shy about sharing what we look like for a variety of reasons, or have other concerns about publicly posting pix, you are welcome to share a picture of your feet or your hands, or a favorite picture of you in costume or playing piano taken from behind or anything else that you'd like. The only requirement is that it's actually you.

Not that anyone doesn't already know what the fuck I look like, but in the spirit of the thread, here's a picture of me right now, unkempt hair and all!
