The Best Medicine

I’m not usually a fan of pictures of me, and even less so of posting them, but I love this one.

During a recent shoot, the sublime photographer Joseph Moran made a comment that got me laughing as we tried (to almost no avail) to get some outside headshots on a very windy balcony.

He captured a spontaneous and free part of my personality: one that gets much less life-space than I’d like in my very adult days.

In laughter, I connect to a very important part of me – an uncensored, unedited, unsocialized part. I become childlike again.

It truly is “the best medicine.”
