But even more, I need to feel excited and joyful, whatever the circumstances. That’s where the really important effort takes place – and the really valuable rewards. Frustration and anger drag us down into people we don’t want to be, into selves we certainly have no desire to actualize.

You Only Live Twice or so it seems, One life for yourself and one for your dreams. You drift through the years and life seems tame, Till one dream appears and love is its name.

You Only Live Twice or so it seems,
One life for yourself and one for your dreams.
You drift through the years and life seems tame,
Till one dream appears and love is its name.

And love is a stranger who'll beckon you on,
Don't think of the danger or the stranger is gone.

This dream is for you, so pay the price.
Make one dream come true, you only live twice.

And love is a stranger who'll beckon you on,
Don't think of the danger or the stranger is gone.

I got a little frustrated with my husband recently. It wasn’t a big deal. He did something that annoyed me and I over-reacted. But, in the midst of our aggravation, we don’t always maintain perspective. So when the phone rang, I quickly picked it up and gave him a piece of my mind.

Only I hadn’t checked the caller ID on my cell phone. And it wasn’t him. I had just leashed my sarcastic tirade on a new acquaintance! Luckily it was a bad connection and the caller hadn’t heard my rant (at least she said she didn’t) but I was bright red from embarrassment.

And the lesson hit home loud and clear – always check to see whose calling before answering the phone!

In processing how much more embarrassed I would have been had she heard my actual words, I had to ask myself the obvious question. Why do I care more about what a relative stranger thinks of me than I do about my husband?

Clearly I had my priorities backwards. If I was going to lose my temper with anyone (not a behavior I’m advocating), it would be better to do so with a stranger or a mere acquaintance than with my life’s partner.

And over what did I react so strongly? Without humiliating myself further with the petty details, let’s just say that it was something trivial, something so minor in the grand (and even small) scheme of things that many would say it didn’t even merit a reaction at all (I’m blaming it on the jet lag and exhaustion).

But I’m actually grateful – not for my bad behavior but for the relatively painless wake-up call. It brought me back to reality. It gave me perspective. It refocused me on more appropriate behavior.

It’s too easy to take our close relationships for granted, not to be careful enough because, after all, he’s “stuck with me.” Or he’s the convenient recipient of my frustration just because he’s there or because I feel so comfortable I’ve let down my guard.

But I don’t want my husband to feel stuck with me! I want him to be excited and joyful about our relationship. And that’s what I need to communicate – no matter how I feel at any particular moment.

But even more, I need to feel excited and joyful, whatever the circumstances. That’s where the really important effort takes place – and the really valuable rewards. Frustration and anger drag us down into people we don’t want to be, into selves we certainly have no desire to actualize.

For relationships that are precious to us, we need to be on our guard against these dangers. There’s too much at stake not to answer the phone – and every other situation – with a smile and a cheery hello. And to mean it.

No Hat: 2009-2010

Uploaded for the Portrait Party.

March 15th will be the third and final anniversary of my Daily Portrait Project, in which I've made a non-photographic self-portrait every day and posted it on the web. To celebrate I'm throwing a Portrait Party - instead of drawing myself I'm going to draw other artists.



If you'd like to be one of the artists I draw, please join this group & start a discussion thread with some photos of yourself: www.flickr.com/groups/portraitparty/ I hope to draw at least the first 30 artists to post photos.

It would be great if you also want to draw me and/or the other artists who have posted photos of themselves, but its not required. However, although I'm not actually starting on this project for another couple days many of the other artists have already gone gang-busters. It's a load of fun, so check it out!

Well, for three years I've taken pictures of myself to draw from on at least a weekly basis- so here's a few more for the party.

These were all taken with the video cam in my computer so the resolution isn't that great but they're pretty sharp. Some with my absolute favorite hat, and some with no hat.
