Look at Me!
Parkinson's it seems has taken and eroded more of “myself” than I anticipated.
Having been the proud bearer of a winning smile the beast has taken several teeth and yet I am refusing
to wear veneers lest I should choke on them. However given the blessing of time during the Covid lock down
I thought a little reinvention, parody and posing would be the perfect antidote to a diminishing self image
With only myself to talk to the invention of passing guests helped to wile away the hours.
