Where do we start but within ourselves?
Unlike most people I am not fond of looking at mirrors. What’s the point? It’s enough that the shoe laces are tied neat and the buttons all done. If I devote time for my hair, I might consume one whole day.
But what is it really about me that irks me? Darkness. I harbor dark thoughts that cloud my courage. I am my own Mothman.
When I look at people, I don’t see a complete being. Instead, I see a construction – an amalgamation of many cultures, religions, generations, books, media, subtleties and stories.
Segregate these variables into categories and you will you have? — A division between good and bad, light and dark, and yes, in-betweens.
Sounds disturbing? But I can’t keep on rubbing my eyes to un-see.
