Padmini, the light bringer for the LBC, has brought us the topic today and I apologize for being late to the party. I will let you know in later posts what the delay was about and why I have posted so little lately. Hint: it has to do with helping other people and the Lady Fossil and I are just fine.
All of us have accused others of and been accused of being two-faced at some time or another. Oh, please! We have many more than two at our ready use and I would argue that properly applied, that is a good thing. It can actually mean we have more integrity and honesty, not less.
For example, as I age, my face is not the face of my youth. Abraham Lincoln said, 'The face you have at 40 is the face you deserve.' Of course, 40 was pretty old in Abe’s day and I’d add about 10 years or so at this point. Or 20+ in my case, as today’s face reflects the experiences and my attitudes toward them. I enjoy the changes as I gray and wrinkle, my face being written like a novel in development.
I also enjoy looking at that face in the morning while preparing for the day then letting it go out into the adventure, responding in ways only others can observe. And I know it changes depending upon circumstance and the company I keep.
How do I know these things? I’m just guessing … but it’s an educated guess based on all the other faces I get to observe in action.
Now, a lead-in to an approaching post: what are these faces saying?
