Does My Instagram Reflect My Life?

There’s a lot of talk about one’s persona on social media versus who one is IRL. I think mine are pretty close. Call it authenticity or call it a lack of depth. I’m not that complicated. High maintenance and anxiety driven? Sure. Mysterious and subtle? Not so much.

Let’s go to the tape.

Breakdowns
Subject
Horses – 4/12: Rodney, Whiskey/Sam, Rodney again, Milton
Cats – 5/12: four kitten, one Blue
Other – 3/12: two scenic, one dressing error

Place
Home – 4/12: all the kitten pictures
Barn – 5/12: pasture (three horses, one sunset), stall (cat)
Elsewhere – 3/12: show, Birmingham, lesson

Horses and cats. A horse show and a riding lesson. The occasional trip into town. Yeah, that’s my life.

Instagram posts from September to November 2018, @myvirtualbrushbox. Previous recap [Be Vewy, Vewy Quiet, I’m Back On Instagram].

The camera angle makes the ring look bigger than it is. By coincidence, the dimensions are similar to a large dressage arena [The Forging of the Ring].

  1. I don’t do Instagram. I just don’t have the time and wherewithal to figure it out. But I would imagine you are one in the same there and here. I like the glimpses. I feel like I’ve watched you S L O W L Y get comfortable with pulling back the curtain. I understand the struggle. My hat is so off to you! 🙂

  2. @debandtoby – I don’t think any house with four kittens could be called peaceful. Nice, yes.

    @Avery – !

    @rontuaru – I would not be upset if you sorted out Instagram, or got back to blogging. Your photos are great. I mean, if I were allowed to organize other peoples’ lives for my own convenience and amusement.
