I normally wear glasses. I took them off for some of my author portraits. (The glasses-free pic is a few posts below.) I don’t know why I took them off. Probably for variety. Probably because I never see myself without them.
Maybe I’m wondering if I look younger without the specs. Maybe I’m wondering if I look smarter with the specs. More worldly? More readerly? (Yes, I know readerly is not a word. I’m a writer so I make stuff up.)
I’ve worn glasses for so long, I feel naked without them. Nudity is forbidden on WordPress. So here’s my portrait with glasses. Wow. I look smart, don’t I?
