Masks People Wear
When I was young I had a dream . . . or really it was more of a nightmare. And I had the same dream more than once.
I'd fall asleep and, in my dream, my family would gather around me and take off their masks. They'd finally reveal who they really were, which was usually an alien or a monster. I make it sound like my family was horrible-they weren't. I don't know what that dream meant but it was scary.
But what's REALLY strange about that dream and how frightened I was of masks, now-after I've grown up, my family is very "into" masks. We have them hanging all around the house.
Jake did this tiger when he was in middle school, Luke did the anime-guy, and Kara did Mickey. I don't know if you remember the death masks I posted a while back but we have those hanging around too.
So, what's on your wall? And, which mask would you wear?
