Halloween is right around the corner, but I see you are already wearing your costume. Your mask is interesting, I like the the way it obscures your true features. You could be anyone! Maybe I don’t know you at all. The cape flows and rustles when you walk. In and out of the room so fast. Your deep whisper intrigues. Oh, the stories you tell.
Hide, shadow, hold back
Cold indifference seems easy
Really much harder
Some people enjoy costume parties because behind their masks they can be themselves without being found out. Our true, animated self feels vulnerable when exposed. It seems easier to curtail what we really think and feel.
I admire Richard Branson if for no other reason (but there are other reasons) than he lives out loud. He succeeds big and fails big, and is proud of it all. I have been peeking a few glances at this book, Losing My Virginity, in between writing and have found it quite a compelling read.
Also makes be a bit pensive. I realize I wear my mask more than I would like to admit.
