This is me in my Camry, circa 2015 (since given to my daughter). I may have been wearing a camisole under my sweater, as I was wont to do back then. I had one in every color; now I have none. I was definitely wearing a cheap cameo necklace, which you can kinda sorta see under my hair. My hair is much shorter now and my sunglasses are smaller, making for a more sedate, less campy look.
I find the selfie trend amusing. Once, we had cameras pointed outward, to document our travels, and to preserve memories of friends and family on special occasions. But now we turn the camera on ourselves, to post our navels to the world. Look at this new piece of lint! Isn’t it utterly fascinating?
But nobody looks. No one cares. They’re all busy tuning and shading and filtering their own selfies to present their curated face and camouflaged emotions to an indifferent metaverse.
