A mummy

Have been doing some What-iffing over the weekend -

from "mother" to "mummy" - quite a leap, though both invite story. i hope i can manage to actually leave a comment this time. being fluent only in english and southern, i just poke around till it takes. need to write down what works, but i always forget about doing that till i've tried several things then i've forgotten what i've tried. i mean, really, you'd think i'd learn eventually since i love visiting here . . .

I've looked at this a couple times and I still can't decide whether it looks like she's wearing sunglasses or if she's alien. Either way it's an inspiring face....

(she does in bright daylight, but in the evening there is something alien about her...) - that´s the worrysome thing about making faces, they keep staring back at you (which is why I like making them, actually - it´s like inventing characters in writing, they crawl out of the pages + go on living with you...)
