#365feministselfie: Week 15

I am participating once again in the #365feministselfie project, now in its sixth year. Here is a thread for others to share selfies and/or talk about the project, visibility generally, self-appreciation, and related topics. And also because I always just love seeing your splendid faces!

A few of my selfies over the last two weeks:

image of my shoulders and head in close-up as I'm standing in the rain wearing a fluffy black hooded coat, large black glasses, and a red sweater
A cold and rainy evening out to dinner with Iain,
but I had a big, warm coat to keep me dry!

image of my pale white wrist pressed against my friend Ari's warm beige wrist, each of us sporting a tattoo of a cat holding a can to its ear, with strings stretching out the bottoms of the cans that connect when we put our wrists together
A visit from one of my besties brought the cats together again!

image of me dozing off while lying next to a snoozing Dudley the Greyhound on the sofa
After Sunday brunch comes Sunday naps.

image of me from the shoulders up, sitting on the stairs in my house, crying
The day Sophie died. Posting this incredibly raw image was
and is difficult, but the whole point of #365feministselfie is
to document real life, and this was my reality that day.

image of me from the shoulders up, looking at the camera with a neutral-to-sad expression, in black and white
This was all I had that day. Which is fine.

image of me standing in a full-length mirror with my hair down, smiling, and wearing grey-framed glasses, a black top, blue jeans, an acrylic necklace in the shape of a 50s diner, and bright pink shoes
Sometimes it's all about the necklace and the pink shoes.

image of me from the shoulders up sitting in my living room with my hair pulled up, wearing grey-framed glasses, a grey tank top, and a necklace that says in black writing 'protagonist'
Protagonist of my own story.
