#NaPhoPoMo Day 23: What's in the Mirror?

Behavior is the mirror in which everyone shows their image.
— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I'm still walking around the house in awe of all of the clean windows, mirrors and screens. Everything, the view outside and objects inside the house, looks clean and bright. I didn't realize that a minuscule layer of dust held my sight at the surface and kept me from seeing things in depth. I even find myself tidying up a corner or space so that the reflected image of a room looks better. It's an optical illusion that's becoming real.

I thought about a TED Talk on mirror neurons that I saw a few years ago and watched it again. Perhaps I'm not as looney as I (and you?) thought, it's just my mirror neurons at work. If you'd like, watch VS Ramachandran's presentation: 3 Clues to Understanding Your Brain

Caution: It may change the way you look at mirrors.


During the month of November, as part of NaPhoPoMo, I intend to post at least one photo a day here. Sometimes with a little story, sometimes with only a caption, always in the hope of resisting the urge for it all to be perfect.
