Face Time

How interesting is your face? I live Southern California, where one's face can just be an illusion. The quest for beauty is a constant goal, and so-called remedies such as botox are in high demand. Is this a good thing? Whenever we experience a basic emotion, that emotion is automatically expressed by the muscles of the face. That response may linger on the face for just a fraction of a second, but its always there. The face is like a penis. What I mean by this is that your face has a mind of its own. Have you ever had the experience where somebody comments on your expression and you didn't know you were making it? "What are you getting upset about?" "Why are you smirking?" If we knew what was on our face, would we be better at concealing it? But would this be a good thing? Imagine if there were a switch that we all had to turn off the expressions on our face. If babies had that switch, we wouldn't know what they were feeling. Or imagine if you were married to someone with that switch. It would be impossible. I don't think mating and infatuation and friendships would occur if our faces didn't work that way. When someone tells us "I love you" we look immediately and directly at him or her because by looking at the face, we can KNOW--or, at least we can know a great deal more- about whether the sentiment is genuine. Do you see tenderness and pleasure? Or do we catch a fleeting expression of distress and unhapppiness across that persons face. I often came home after a night of boozing and frolic, my spouse could tell immediatley. She would tell me that I had the look of "the cat who ate the canary"...Thank God I stopped drinking and avoided the botox center. As for the canary, I still want to eat her...So please, showmeyourcrowsfeet

"The face is like a penis?"

Wow, I feel a country song coming on!

Thanks for your blog...my face was expressing the fleeting desire that I had the $400 bucks for my next botox shot.
