We are the sum of the masks we wear for others and for ourselves. I hear you begin to object, but listen: for mask you may substitute a gentler word if you choose. Belief. Philosophy. Code. Name. Job. Shadow. Body.
Whatever word you choose for these things, once you’ve stripped them away from you, what remains?
Here are some of my masks. Some of these are links; some are not. Some are blogs, some are essays, and some are just shouts into the darkness.
