Masks: Quote from AWAD

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth. -Oscar Wilde, writer (1854-1900)

Interesting thought, especially to those of us who are hiding behind a mask of anonymity. What do you think? Are we more free to tell the truth when we blog anonymously? Do we tell the truth? Or does anonymity encourage us to stretch the truth? embellish the truth? strain the truth?

Hmmmmmmm. What do you think?

Sheer Bliss: The Great Kuwait National Holiday Challenge

Q8Dutchie gave permission to add this one National Day Holiday Challenge photo, which in my heart I call Sheer Bliss. Grown-ups think the foam thing is awful. Children think the foam thing is wonderful (unless they get some in they eyes, or some jerk is spraying insecticide, or hair removal creme, or . . .)

OOps! Not the time and place for my soapbox! Especially with the joy in this photo!

I love the way she captured the action going in the background while, for one instant, this one little girl stands still. 🙂 Well done, Q8Dutchie!

For the Record: Sunrise 3 March 09

It’s cold. It’s warm. It’s chilly. It’s hot. There is wind and cloud and clear sky today, and one of those days, sigh, when it’s good to carry a couple extra layers.
