If you want to torture yourself, take a look at your passport.
Chances are you look pretty awful. With flat lighting, a grim full frontal pose, and that look of bafflement, your photo probably looks like a mug shot.
Are glamorous Hollywood stars just like us when they submit to the artless lens of the passport photographer?
You be the judge.
Karen and I wish all our friends and relatives a lovely and meaningful Shabbat.
