Self Portrait, playing with mirrors
MIRRORS ARE MADE FOR MAGIC, NOT FOR SELF-CRITIQUE!
61 favorites as of 1/29/12!
I feel that mirrors possess both a mystical and dangerous aspect. As humans, and especially for women, we too-often view mirrors as places to judge our imperfections. Instead, let us focus on the gift of being alive, the gift of having this instrument to see our own faces. No one is perfect and no mirror will change that.
When I was a child, I amused myself often with attempts to walk into the “world inside the mirror”. Needless to say, it didn’t work, but I am still amazed at the magical quality that mirrors have. For believers in ghosts, I read that if a few mirrors are positioned a certain way they will reveal shadowy figures. ;)
NOTE: A few people have mentioned they like this dress. :) Here is the secret: Curtains make lovely gowns! The sheath is a curtain tied around me with a clip. Over that is a dressing gown made of thin net, and tied around that is a silken neck-scarf. So, very simple and inexpensive! Thanks to those of you who commented on it! :)
