Quote of the Day – September 24 2012

“In most of our human relationships, we spend much of our time reassuring one another that our costumes of identity are on straight.”
― Ram Dass

I see this in others so it reflects back to myself. I fall into this role of I. Not how I am but how I wish to be seen. That changes day by day and person by person, after all few of us are the same with friends as we are with family as we are with strangers. We have our social masks, our seductive masks, our polite and open masks. Some days I get so tired from taking off masks that I forget what my real face looks like at all.
Little by little I have been dropping the masks a bit. Letting my true face breathe. It’s a bit easier when I’m alone but around others it happens more and more naturally..I wonder at times if it is possible to walk around mask less in today’s world. Heck 2000 years ago it could get you crucified or outcast..
People would rather see someone walking around without clothes than without a social identity. After all someone without a mask makes us all that much aware of our own..
Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – October 1 2011

“I prefer to be a dreamer among the humblest, with visions to be realized, than lord among those without dreams and desires. ”
–Kahlil Gibran

When I create images, they become something of a waking dream. I compose elements and backgrounds and slowly an image takes shape. I find they and perhaps myself exist in a form of heightened reality. Yet I know that I too exist as a dream taking shape.There too I may be the dreamer as well as the dream and perhaps also my dream may be formed by a dreamer beyond myself. –g a rosenberg
