Yes, this is me as a toddler, for those who don't like the anonymous element of nameless blogs. I thought it might be nice to give Shameless some kind of face. I have changed a lot though, rest assured. This is proof that I once had hair (I have a "number one" now) and that I was fair-haired (I only remember having dark hair).
How many of you ever take the time to look at your childhood photos? Is it such a shameless thing to dwell on them, or even make them public like this? I like to remind myself of that time when anything was possible, when there were less boundaries, conditioning and baggage. It can still be like this, if we can just clear our minds and try to regain our innocence! I like to remind myself about the existence of that little child within, who is always welcome company in this world of having to be a man. Play and laugh! Play and laugh!
So, I hereby call on my fellow bloggers to share with us at least one photo of themselves as a child. Take yourself back to a good time (I know childhoods are not always easy). Make a new start. Get back in touch with your inner child. You'll be amazed what it can do for your writing. You'll be amazed what it can do for your general state of mind. Who will take up this challenge? Or will my baby face be the only one shining out from the blogosphere?
Let yourself go ga ga!
