Ermilia’s Picture it & write (Sunday 16th September 2012)
Once again, here is my offering to ‘Picture it & write’ hosted by Ermilia (Ermisenda and Eliabeth) who invite others to join them by writing a fictional story or poem to accompany an image presented on their blog.
(Listen while you read)
What’s in a mirror?
Shouldn’t that be; who’s in a mirror?
Well, to say; what’s in a mirror is like saying; what’s it made of.
What and who are two completely different things. What; pertains to the chemical structure, and who; um… pertains to the chemical structure…! Um, yeah, I see what you mean (no pun intended). The what (the chemical structure), and the who (the chemical structure) apply to both. But, hold on. Who then is the ‘emotional’ side of me? Arr yeah; it’s also the chemical structure. Ah gee; the what, and the who (when broken down to the smallest common denominator) are one and the same.
Darn; I wanted to talk about the ‘emotional’ turmoil of what one sees when one looks at oneself in the mirror, i.e., the ‘who’; and you have taken that away from me with your chemistry exposé. Darn. Can I talk about the ‘who’ without thinking about the ‘what’ for a moment? Yeah? Good. I’ll talk about the ‘who’ we see when we look into the mirror.
Now I’ve lost my train of thought. Darn.
I’m realising that we can’t separate the what from the who. Darn; they are intrinsically engaged; aren’t they!
Can I start this piece again, please? Oh, come on; let me have one more try. I’m sure I could do better…….
