Being real . . .
"All that is in the heart is written in the face." ~ African Proverb
Can you meet some one and know they have a great heart just by seeing their face? Can you tell if you'd want to be or could be great friends with them? Can you look into some one's eyes and see their soul?
How about as a blogger - are there just some that you know right away that you like and they have a soul or spirit similar to yours?
I mentioned this quote to my daughter - she says no - that most people hide who they are. That we wear masks. I say yes sometimes - I do think the eyes are the windows of the soul. You can see sadness there - joy - peace.
What do you think? Do you think you can tell a book by their cover or that people are hiding things?
"If I had influence with the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children, I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life." - Rachel Carson
Man this has me thinking too - wouldn't that be wonderful to have? How do children lose their sense of wonderment? How do we get to be adults without it in tact? Is that the reason for mid life crisis?
Happy Birthday Katie Couric - Wikipedia - she's always had a real cute little happy face - with heart - I think anyway.
Couric married Jay Monahan in 1989. Couric had her first daughter, Elinor Tully "Ellie" Monahan, on July 23, 1991; her second daughter, Caroline "Carrie" Couric Monahan, was born on January 5, 1996. Jay Monahan died of colon cancer in 1998 at the age of 42; as a result, Couric is a prominent spokeswoman for colon cancer awareness. She underwent a colonoscopy on-air in March 2000, and, according to a study published by Archives of Internal Medicine (July 14, 2003), inspired many others to get checked as well.
