Masks Off

We’re less than a week away from Halloween! If you had to design a costume that channeled your true, innermost self, what would that costume look like? Would you dare to wear it?

The mask I would wear would be a complete invisible outfit. No one would know I was there, and yet you would recognize me by two things in my hands. You would see a pencil and notebook.

I always thought it would be fascinating to see how others act when there is no one to impress. What is the true soul like? When there is no one in sight where fear, jealousy, hatred, insecurities do not exist, how is the soul?

I would love to walk around the room. I would listen to words, watch body movement, look into the eyes, take in the shape of the mouth.

I think humans are fascinating, but I think it is sad that our surroundings can influence who and what we represent, instead of showing our true colors. After the party was over I would take my notebook  home and build a story about what I observed. I know when all is done and said, the story would be awesome. I would find that with no fog, no curtains to hide behind, no shadows to follow, our world is awesome and a wonderful place to live.

The next phase of the project would be to take the invisible shield off and do a large study on people who will speak to me. The question?

What would it take for you to feel at ease and comfortable in your skin at all times?
