A New Picture

A little while ago, I posted a picture my student drew of me. It was a quick sketch, but I think it captured me quite well.  I thought she showed quite a bit of talent and other people reacted quite positively towards it.  You can view that picture here or on my instagram account–which is called todaysperfectmoment.

Today, she presented me with a new picture. She said that this one included me smiling.  I think it is a great picture and I am happy to show it here.  The only think I am a little less than happy about is that she omitted my forehead scar.  While I haven’t always liked it, it has been part of my life since I was three.  I got it when I fell onto the edge of the staircase while chasing my older sister.  It required stitches and left a scar that has grown along with me.  As I said, I haven’t always liked it, butI have come to accept it and felt that it was missing from the picture.  I guess she wanted to show me in the best light possible.  I think I would rather she have given me more hair.

Obviously, this qualifies as Today’s Perfect Moment.  I think I am going to frame it and then a year or so from now hang it on my wall.

    Hi Anthony! What a nice drawing! I guess she didn’t know your scar…or she might have cared it because some people do not want people to mention their personal stuff..
    Anyway Daniel and I were talking a few days ago on FaceTime! We talked about you!
    Would be nice to go to your favorite bar with us someday again…🙌🏻
