Hiatus Post No. 12 – Antiques

I am taking April off from Disperser Tracks, from reading blogs, from Facebook, from Twitter, and from the Internet in general. I plan to return (virtually) live on May 1st. 

Meanwhile, I scheduled a few posts (like this one) to go live during April . . . like a blog heartbeat of sorts.

I should mention, I am not monitoring comments. I will eventually read them in May, but if anyone has a question, the best bet is to send me an e-mail.

We have not done so for some time now, but we used to visit antique stores pretty regularly. When I don’t see dolls, I see other depictions of the human condition.

I wonder where she is going . . . but, no; I don’t mean paintings. I mean masks.

I spent some time trying to line up holes with the eyes openings; it only worked out for a few. 

We all wear masks. Or, in these Internet days, we hide behind a fake name, fake identity, or fake persona. I think that is one of the reasons the Internet has exploded as it has . . . us people afflicted with outer ugliness and them people harboring an inner ugliness have both found a playground where we feel safe to interact. . . or attack.

It’s nothing new, of course, but the Internet really has unleashed the best and worst in people. My advice? Avoid them who burden your life with darkness.

If you can . . . go for the smiles.

  1. Yes, I go for the smiles! :-)
    Love the masks photos! :-)
    What you said about the internet is so true. It’s angering and sad and baffling to me why some people have to bully and judge and attack…say things they would never say eyeball-to-eyeball.
    HUGS!!! :-)

    I’m always attracted to the maschere veneziane and one of my all time favorite places to visit is Venice and wandering those intimate stradette with loads of maschere shops! Delicious idea.

    But, I also found that clown portrait very lovely. The colors are so bold and lively that they balance the apparent sadness in his face.
