Something to think about …. Masks!!


Mask

~~August 18, 2014~~

A mask is an object normally worn on the face, typically for protection, disguise, performance or entertainment. Masks have been used since antiquity for both ceremonial and practical purposes.

They are usually worn on the face, although they may also be positioned for effect elsewhere on the wearer’s body, so in parts of Australia giant totem masks cover the body, whilst Inuit women use finger masks during storytelling and dancing.

~~Masks in theatre~~

Masks are an important part of many theater forms throughout world cultures, and their usage in theater has often developed from, or continues to be part of old, highly sophisticated, stylized theatrical traditions.

In many cultural traditions the masked performer is a central concept and is highly valued. In the western tradition actors in Ancient Greek theater wore masks, as they do in traditional Japanese Noh drama.

In some Greek masks the wide and open mouth of the mask contained a brass megaphone enabling the voice of the wearer to be projected into the large auditoria. In medieval Europe masks were used in mystery and miracle plays to portray allegorical creatures, and the performer representing God frequently wore a gold or gilt mask.

LYRICS

“Are we really happy with
This lonely game we play
Looking for the right words to say
Searching but not finding
Understanding anyway
We’re lost in this masquerade

Both afraid to say we’re just too far away
From being close together from the start
We tried to talk it over
But the words got in the way
We’re lost inside this lonely game we play …. “

This song always had a very special meaning for me. I love Karen Carpenter. Her voice was sultry, velvety and so ever changing.ย

We are living difficult times. We don’t really know who is telling the truth in so many spheres and arenas. Personal, religious, political, markets, financial and commerce, military, legal, environmental … you name it.

“Sometimes it’s not the people who change. It’s the mask that falls off.”

We ALL are connected through HUMANITY!!
