  2. Thanks very much Michael!! Unfortunntly most women do feel this way. I was inspired to write it by my daughter watching me put on my make up (which I do in the mornings)? he watches me curiously and I wonder what image I’m instilling.

  4. Oh not sure what happened yesterday Jennifer think I must have pressed the wrong button and unfollowed you or something as my comment and your posts disappeared from my reader …. I only joined wp last month, so all still new to me … anyhow, back to your post … this is so strong, such great writing! πŸ™‚

  5. How many of us hide ourselves behind that mask for a myriad of reasons? Your post transcends the paint we cover our faces with, and offers much more in what is not said. Still, I wonder, if the make-up is really who we are and if our day to day selves are the actual masks as we pretend to fit in?

    Love the image as well, especially the company name on the van. Back in the late 80s, Glamour Photos were all the rage here in this little place and my mom (and sisters) all had their images taken while wearing make-up and all sorts of fancy clothing.

    Thanks for sharing this πŸ™‚


    • You pose some really great and valid points. I suppose reflecting on this, we can begin to understand our own personal feelings and emotions. For me, personally, I try to be true to myself and be me, but I suppose fundamentally we are all swayed by society, to a degree. I know as a woman, ‘painting my face,’ has become a daily routine, something so normal. (this is just my personal thoughts about myself). Thanks for sharing your thoughts too. I actually wasn’t aware, Glamour Photos were such a big thing! I’m in Australia, I wonder if it was common here too?

      • I think it is wise to always be ourselves while understanding that we are all affected by cultural and societal norms, fads and fashion. It’s the same for me, as a guy, trimming, shaving, grooming, using hair products (when I let my hair grow out), etc. It has become a part of my routine.

        That’s a good question. I don’t know how far the Glamour Picture project traveled πŸ™‚

        I am always happy to share my thoughts with intelligent humans πŸ™‚
