Reality and Image

Is who you are different from who you portray to be? Is the real you different from what others see?

I am looking at Amanda Bynes and my mind went on the whole Disney child-actor thing. In the Mickey Mouse club you had to have an image, I guess, of purity. You acted in their movies and you had to maintain a certain way about you. Maybe today it is different, I do not know. Not blaming Disney.

On the flip side, if you acted, portrayed, or did the opposite of “purity” then you got an image of being fast, wild, and loose when in reality you were not.

So it is with certain people in the entertainment business around the world. You may be in box A when you really are living out of box B. Or vice versa.

And so it is with certain people not in the entertainment business but the so-called average, everyday people. You and me.

Who are we really? If you know, kudos.

If you are masked then . . .

“We wear the mask that grins and lies,

It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes–

This debt we pay to human guile; . . .” Paul Laurence Dunbar

Have a happy summer. 🙂

Love you. Take care. 🙂

Add Amanda Bynes to your prayer list.


Are You Forgivable?

Yes, no, or it depends?

Have a happy summer. 🙂

Love you. Take care. 🙂

Keeping It Open

See not only with your eyes but with your heart.

Hear not only with your ears but with your heart.

An open heart is compassionate.

Have a happy summer. 🙂

Love you. Take care. 🙂

Sometimes a bad thing can be a good thing

Is there such a thing as a happy divorce?

Has anything bad happened in your life that turned out to be a good thing?

Happy summer to all. 🙂

“Mother Nature”

I would like to thank God for what some have called “Mother Nature”. God truly created an abundance of beauty. 🙂

Meow, Not Roar

Sometimes courage does not come with a roar.

“Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless, and knowledge without integrity is dangerous and dreadful.” from Rasselas, ch 41 by Samuel Johnson 🙂

Saying sorry with no heart

“The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.” Psalm 55 vs 21

Have I ever mentioned that I love King’s David poetry. 🙂
