I woke up to my beautiful magnolia still perfectly intact but it had aged dramatically from its creamy white petals to this worn antiqued look. I did a self portrait with it in its youthful beauty 2 days ago. As I looked at it this morning it reminded me of myself for a moment. I’m still intact, even though the surface beauty has faded. However, I think this magnolia is even more beautiful now. It has character and imperfections ┬áthat only “living” can bring. It looks like it has gone through many trials of strengthening through faith, and has eternal beauty full of grace. So another self portrait of my eternal self. Erika Masterson 2017
