MrMary Reads: Masquerades disclose the reality of souls

Masquerades disclose the reality of souls. As long as no one sees who we are, we can tell the most intimate details of our life. I sometimes muse over this sketch of a story about a man afflicted by one of those personal tragedies born of extreme shyness who one day, while wearing a mask I don’t know where, told another mask all the most personal, most secret, most unthinkable things that could be told about his tragic and serene life. And since no outward detail would give him away, he having disguised even his voice, and since he didn’t take careful note of whoever had listened to him, he could enjoy the ample sensation of knowing that somewhere in the world there was someone who knew him as not even his closest and finest friend did. When he walked down the street he would ask himself if this person, or that one, or that person over there might not be the one to whom he’d once, wearing a mask, told his most private life. Thus would be born in him a new interest in each person, since each person might be his only, unknown confidant.”

    1. I love this picture of yours right next to your name. First thanks for commenting. I have the feeling for me at least that the blog persona :Mrmary and Myself are soemdays very different and sometimes they are indistinguishable. It’s very hard for me to really come to a conclusion on when Im dave or MrMary at the end of the day or at the end of the week. Thsi quote really shed a light on that dynamic and I am glad it did somethign for you too

      Btw what was up with that firefly picture LOL man I was scrolling down at work and LOL

      1. I know, too much info eh?! Ewwww…..

        My ‘nun’ picture personifies me at my best, inappropriate, fun and joyful. The main yoga picture is probably me right now, a whole plethora of contradictory personality traits, but all true and relevant.

        I think I am the most myself on here as i just blurt out whatever’s in my head, whether its palatable, entertaining or not.

        Day to day me, I was someone I didn’t want to be. I threw that in and am trying to figure out who i really am. Blogging is helping.

        I like you blog Mr Mary, you are very you and I love people like that. I can’t bear fakes and phonies, and whatever I do moving forward I will avoid them at all cost.
