  1. I’ve been scrolling through posts today Louise and the image of that woman with the knife I do find disturbing…..I am sure it is NOT a self portrait?? Of course it isn’t….


    1. No self portrait, Michael – I just liked how it fitted with my six word story. 🙂 I am one of those people who tends to bury my annoyance and irritation until it eventually explodes, though…

    1. I knew as soon as I saw it on Pixabay that the picture would be perfect for the story – you never know what’s brewing behind a pleasant smile! I’m generally quite easy going but I definitely bury any irritation I feel, only for it to eventually explode. It’s good to know you recognize the feeling!
