Masks

We’ve always worn masks. That’s what we do. Some are truly reflective of our emotions and our identities. Some aren’t. 

One reason I make faces is because of those masks. When we roam through our worlds we rarely see our own masks – we’re too busy trying to understand the ones other humans wear. 

My particular pleasure comes from creating and cataloging the masks I see. Sometimes, when I’m lucky, I recognize the ones I’ve worn.
