Different Phases of My Face
Someone, whose name will go unknown, mentioned my previous posted photo is a lil too Morticia so I'm posting another photo of me in my off hours. To be honest, I don't like pictures (of myself). Most smiles are staged. That's why I like this pic. I did things I didn't mean to do--my eyes are closed & I accidently smiled.
Penguin's Dictionary of Symbols has this to say about the FACE: Incomplete and fleeting though it may be, the face is an unveiling, like the unveiling of the Mystic in Pompeian wall-paintings. Nobody has ever had direct sight of his or her own face, it can only be seen with the help of a MIRROR. Faces are not for thier owners, but for others and for God. Faces are silent words. Whether we like it or not, it is the part of oneself which one reveals to the world at large. It is the ego laid bare in part and far more revealing than the rest of the body.
This is but the beginning of Penguin's entry about the face. I agree.
