  • Who’s looking at who? Well, I’m looking at me and with 30 years between us it’s wonderful to be reminded of the choices I had begun to make as a teenager. And the choices that would form the person I am today.

    And it’s all in a t-shirt.

    And while the picture on the front reveals something about my tastes in music, I also know that the timid, shy girl behind those eyes, slowly and gradually grew into the stronger and more confident woman I am now.

    Still rolling up her sleeves and getting on.
