Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.

Quote by Edgar Allan Poe

 

My first serious attempt on a self-portrait.

 

I would like to recount on the slash mark on my right cheek. When I was 3, I used to wonder "Why is that only my father can shave and not me? Why shouldn't I try doing it myself?" Once when everyone was out, I dragged a stool all the way from our kitchen to the toilet, climbed on it and dragged his sharp razor across my cheek. Blood dripped all over my cheek, while I was seriously staring at the mirror to see if I had done it right.
