Question of the Month



As I grow older, I witness my relationships with people morphing. Old relationships shift with age, and new relationships begin. The cycle of life and death continues in an inner way, and I find myself wondering ...do people change? Or do they merely remove their masks and reveal who they truly are?

  1. Hmm... I'm going to say its a combination of both... but I dunno. Its really a good question to ponder. Now I'll be thinking and trying to figure this out about myself all day lol

    1. I kind of think it's a bit of both, too. It's complicated, isn't it? Ah, life.

    2. Both, yet we still wear masks, just different ones, depending.

      The many friends I had forty years ago are gone, the very few I have now are good.

      What you think as teens important, isn't. And what you think wasn't important then, is.

    3. I have found that to be true - what drove me as a teen seems petty now, and what I ignored I wish I hadn't.

  2. Well, I think for the most part, I'm the same person I've always been. Just a lot older, and hopefully, a little wiser. Oh, and I don't always bother to hold in my stomach. (One of the perks of getting old.)

    1. With age does come wisdom. Perhaps it's less a change of who we are but more of an unfolding, a realization of certain truths, that takes us and sharpens us.
