Self Portrait Tuesday - I am not Lisa
This was a well loved photo. I had this on my bulletin board for years, back before all the safe photo stuff. At one point, I stuck a thumbtack on my face. This is a photo taken in 1967 with my best friends, Lisa and Lisa. I am the one looking so adoringly at my friends. Backtrack 3 years or so. My Mother is pregnant with me and working in an office. There are other pregnant women and the usual talk of due dates, boy or girl, and, of course, names. Well, my Mom had been thinking of the name Lisa until a couple other women mentioned this fact also. Scratch that, she thought, and asked her neighbor in the office if she had any suggestions. "How about Dana?" Hence, me. In this photo, had I known this story, I probably wished my name was Lisa too.
