Reflections

You will disappear
When the mirror is not there
Only I exist.

I often feel the 'real world' is a lot like that. All just reflected in my mind, probably all made up.

I loved this, Elspeth... sometimes I wonder who that other person is in the mirror...

My youngest grandson had the hardest time with this! I still see him look back at the mirror as he walks away.

Hi Elspeth, Roswila (Patricia) here, who's emailed about having trouble posting comments to your blog. Well, it just occurred to me I should try using Firefox (I usually use I.E. as my browser). Well, lo and behold, here's a comment window, courtesy of Firefox/Mozilla!

As I said in my email, I really resonate with this haiku...many faces, one Spirit. :-D

I like the idea of the two selves -- the one seen by the eyes, and the one that is unseen but always there.
