the secret lives of quiet girls

I love this (unidentified) photo and all it represents: my nerdy back-to-school reading heart, the way it springs to life in cooler weather, and the quiet, secret lives of introverts (of which I'm a bonafide).

There's been lots of chatter of late about introverts, but it's real and our gifts (and needs) are not always readily acknowledged in this world. Which is another reason why I like this photo: the confident, self-loving smile upon that girl's lips, and the rich inner life implied therein.

Are you one?
