to see oursels as ithers see us

Today I videotaped myself as part of a practice run for the National Board certification process. I'll begin official recording next week, for my small-group component.

Nothing is as excruciating as self-observation. There is a place in this world for autobiography, but largely as a form of self-serving fable-making. Auto-anthropology, though, is entirely masochistic.

I wore the tie pictured at right. The camera survived.
