Daily Prompt: Mirror, Mirror

Look in the mirror. Does the person you see match the person you feel like on the inside? How much stock do you put in appearances?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us MIRRORED.


I live in Los Angeles so this is – How much stock do you put in appearance – is such a loaded question.  If I say I don’t put much stock in my appearance, then people might assume that I just don’t care, and even wonder, damn, when did she start letting herself go?  I mean, with the Santa Anas blowing, my allergies are in full swing – my eyes are watering and my nose is runny and I’ve been sneezing like a mutha since yesterday.  Do I think I look great? Um, no…I actually feel like a beached whale, too, because I feel so bloated and my head is stuffed with cotton.

If I did say, why yes, I put much stock into my appearance and they see the person I just described above, they might say, girl, you need to put a whole lotta more stock in them appearance of yours.  By the way, here’s the way to Sephora.

So maybe you should ask me tomorrow, after I’ve taken my allergy pill first thing in the morning instead of waiting till my allergies are in full throttle, and I’m just feeling miserable and touch typing my way through this.

But it is a beautiful day here in California though…really!

  1. I know what you mean. NYC is a quite a mix of people. Still you have to think about what you look like! I know that I am not great, but I have minimum standards for myself. When I’m not in the best of physical/mental health it’s a challenge! I imagine LA is very much the same.

  2. What do you see? The weather here sucks. It’s 15 degrees, there’s 4″ of snow on the ground, I can’t get out of my driveway because we don’t expect snow so the area doesn’t have snowplows. I live in the south. I am moving to LA to be with my friend the MUSE….packing now. Orcrist is on his own. LOL

Got something to say? Spill the beans!
