TAIPEI, 1991 — Do you remember what you were wearing the day you got pregnant? I do. Black tank. Black Ray-Bans. 11 June ’91. I’d just graduated from HKAPA 4 days earlier and wandered off to Taipei to play. I thought I was the coolest, hottest girl in the world.
THE HAGUE, 2012 — It’s so “funny” and unexpected the ways the events of our lives cascade and unfold. And in, I suppose, a miniature version of life itself, it’s funny how the pages of your blog or diary unfold. 2 days ago when I published that x-ray of my legs, it never even occurred to me that I’d be printing this pix today. But then yesterday I thought, well, that was my legs from the inside, let’s see them from the outside, and grabbed that senior recital image and posted it. And then looking at it I realized how unexpectedly different my life was going to be a year after that picture. And all of a sudden today I’m dragging out the infamous “black tank” photo. I never thought I’d ever show this pix to anyone.
