Cameras

Vision is a touchy thing. Everyone’s perception is different.

Some are a little off; some are a lot off.

All this time I’ve been focusing on mirrors for truths, but cameras are really where the honesty’s at.

Cameras don’t lie. At least not in candid use. Selfies are manipulative. Especially if you have long arms.

Cameras don’t lie. A picture in hand is nothing like my daily head-on reflection.  It’s completely different.

Cameras don’t lie. Especially side views. Especially on days when I was feeling pretty good about myself.

Cameras don’t lie. It’s not true that cameras automatically add ten pounds. In real-time, real-life, we denyingly subtract them.

Cameras don’t lie. Neither do mirrors, yet, we easily interpret ours flaws more forgivingly in them; a reflection of our own interpretive inner image.

Cameras don’t lie. They capture honest wrinkles, not laughed-off laugh lines; sags, not softness.

Cameras don’t lie: Unless there’s special lighting, and make-up, and photo-shop.

               

As we get older, our eye-sight changes; inevitably weakens.

Thankfully, GOD’s artistic nature is intact.

Our memories paint the better picture we still want to see.

We airbrush ourselves with kindnesses we rarely afford to others; physically and spiritually.

We need to be less like cameras; more like soul mirrors.

Quote for the week:

“Every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and its ultimate expression. The chasm is never completely bridged. We all have the conviction, perhaps illusory, that we have much more to say than appears on the paper.”  ― Isaac Bashevis Singer
