haircut, image

dana jenning's remarkable essay in today's nyt about the power of self-image in the face of oblivion has stayed w/ me all day. [No I did not cut my hair to that extent during my radiation treatment but the underlying idea of rebranding the self, of reclamation resonates through my bones].

I found this video on-line and I keep recognizing my own self, mirrored and refracted, each shard humming with deference, gratitude, awe. This thread we dangle by. This air coming in, going out.
