April 3, 2010 – Self Portrait

April 3, 2010Is it possible to truly reflect upon one’s self? For in one’s reflected image, one sees only the light of one’s outer presence – never the true subject.  The soul is still buried inside; yet it is the soul that brings forth life.

When I see my reflection, the “real me” seems so far away.  Perhaps, though, that is because I eternally live so close to my very being that to see myself, even a few feet away, is a strange and empty loneliness.
