One day when I was little I was “playing” with our cat Pi when she bite me on the nose. I came rushing downstairs with a bloody nose, crying that the cat had bit me. My mom calmly asked, “What were you doing to the cat, Amy?” (she was never one to panic where childhood injuries were concerned). I thought back on this story today when I got hit in the nose with a softball. Remembering her calm nature probably kept me from freaking out...too much.

Thankfully I have not been hit in the nose since I took this picture! The scar from Pi is still there, but my nose hasn't taken anymore abuse.
I completed this photo project from May 2009 to May 2010. Six years later, I'm reposting the series with additional thoughts. Here's what I wrote about it when I started.
