Look in your own face

My mother-in-law says that when you are old, you are surprised to be old. She says you look in the mirror and you are surprised at the old person staring back at you.

The face I see staring back at me feels like my own face. I don’t look at younger pictures of myself and think that’s me.

In civilized life, we spend far too much time looking at the mirror.  Without mirrors, we don’t see ourselves and perhaps we are better for it.

Soul searching is a lot of work, but it involves looking in the soul, not in the face.  I believe in silence and soul realignment, but I have a long ways to go.
