Not so simple.....

We conjure up all this LOFTY, conceptual imagery...
and.....
We intellectualize and critique...
and, yeah...
We even JUDGE...
We can roll those words around like nobody's business...
and we can render and paint and materially manifest just about anything your heart desires...
And we have really good hair and eyes to boot!
So, externally, we seem to be "on the ball"...
But here's the thing....
There comes a moment....
every so often...
when we stop and look around ...
and we take a sort of ethical and moral inventory....
And as we do so....
a MIRROR appears magically on the wall directly in front of us...
And those magnetic eyes of ours look DIRECTLY into themselves...
and there appears to be a hint of 'wistfulness' ...of 'longing' almost...
behind those deep, green pools...
And then....just like that....
the mirror disappears.....the cell phone rings,,,,and the moment is HAPPILY forgotten......
And so it goes...
