purple profile...

years ago
even before this
next photo...

was taken
a friend gave me a card
that reads...
you are a purple person if:
you are imaginative,
sensitive, artistic and
you have noble ideals
 and a keen appreciation
of the cultural
you are alert, demanding,
 foresighted, confident
spontaneous and highly independent
you take delight in the beautiful,
the gracious, the sensitive,
but maintain an attitude of
critical appraisal
you are active in the support
of things you believe in
and are concerned
with the pursuit of truth
 and other human values
you take chances
 and believe that you must do so
 to make the most of what
 life has to offer
purple is an exclusive
 unique color
and it is truly a unique individual
who holds it dear
twenty years ago today
as i bared my shoulders
 for the world to see
i did not see as much
of myself
in that message
as i do today
