"Out of the night that covers me
black as the Pit from pole to pole
I thank whatever gods may be
for my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
my head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
looms but the horror of the shade
and yet the menace of the years
finds, and shall find, me unafraid

it matters not how strait the gate
how charged with punishments the scroll
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul"
- William Ernest Henley

I love it! Red is definitely a great color for you... And I love the color that the direct sun brought out in your eye in this shot... Nice!

Why, thank you. I was actually born with red hair (very bright, intense strawberry blonde), but by the time I was five, it faded to plain old blonde.

My hair has been about seventeen different colors over the years, and I think this one is my absolute favorite.

I keep looking in the mirror (and at this shot) and thinking "nah, that can't be me." I love the contrast.
I think this hair has done more for my self-esteem than any other change I've ever made.

Hey, what color do you add to your hair, Miss Conundra? Is it henna?

Once every three weeks, I put myself in the extraordinarily capable hands of a lovely woman at the local Aveda salon, and she works her magic. I don't know the exact color grade or formula, she guards her secrets well.

I've never tried henna. Always been curious about it, though.

I haven't, but I'm a huge fan of the poem the movie was named for.

Wow. I always love portraits of you because your eyes are so powerful, and this one just ran right up to be one of the best.

I tend to be really, really critical of portraits of myself. When I saw this one, though, all I could do was stare and wonder how the hell David did it.

Not to toot my own horn, but I really love this shot.
