Conjuring a New Profile Image in the Month of October

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

I had to smile at the first of the month when I read Paul Henderson's Challenge that we update our blog profile photos.  After all, my photo has remained the same since I first began blogging over a decade ago.  I often jest when I mention my old photo looks more like me than any new photo does.  However, Paul has a point, there comes a time when it is time to allow old photos to find their way to the album of ancient memories, and freshen things up with something new.  

Lately, I've been busier than a one-legged pirate in a butt-kicking contest.  I haven't really had time to sit for another formal photo shoot.  And, after all, it's October, the month of Halloween!  Halloween adds a different dimension to what's possible with profile pictures, even if it's for only this month.  So, I found a picture taken a few months ago, and with a little help from digital editing spirits, I transported into the realm of imagination.  Yes, that's me!  No, I'm not an evil witch.  I am a wise witch holding the apple of real estate knowledge.  I've been a licensed Realtor since 1981.  That's more than three decades of accumulated real estate wisdom!  

Don't get too accustomed to my new image.  I will again conjure something new the first of next month.

Here's my before, and alas, my new, profile photos.

You are a lovely witch - perhaps more a goddess of nature? Regardless, fun. I like it Myrl. D

I'm with Brian England - you can enter Kimo's contest with this photo, too. I'm not sure why his Halloween post isn't still featured under Contests, but a Halloween Photo was definitely one of his challenges. You look fabulous as a wise witch!
