Hair-tie/Coaster Face

As always, I was minding my own business when something winked at me. This face was created by some hair ties angled on a coaster on my desk. Although there’s no smile, it does have a dimple. Or maybe a beauty mark.

Looking at it more closely, I realized that all the face elements had been there all the time: the App Store and Google Play logos making eyes; the circle as nose, the slot line as mouth. But it never triggered that recognition reaction until I inadvertently added the oval frame of the hair ties.

    Neil Diamond sings: “Then I saw her face…..” I think you’ve just demonstrated what happens when we fall in love. There’s this face, this person, who’s been there all along, and then something happens that frames that face in a new way, and you see it for the first time….

    Face It!

    The title of the portrait show we did out at Debbie’s Framing near Greely in around 2006. Sixty people saw Walter/Bella — over 40 minutes — get “in face” as a drag queen. Then she and two other drag queens did a show.
    A little 5-year-old girl sat in front of Walter fascinated. When Walter turned into Bella, the little girl said, “You’re a girl now, for sure!”

    It was a day of transformative meeting of evangelical and LGBT — and changed lives.

      Barbara – Delightful. I wonder whether that would hold true in other areas, too – that seeing the transition helps with acceptance.

        In my youth there were Come As You Are parties when you’d get a phone call and however you were dressed, that’s how you went.

        Now I feel that way about a sudden need to go to Emergency — the hospital the final Come As you Are humiliation, if life-saving.

          Barbara – A good point. Why our mothers told us to always wear clean and not too-worn underwear.
