I received several interesting comments in response to last week’s post, Messages and Masks. Some were submitted with explanation, others simply stated. A couple were discussed in *gasp* person.
“The first thing that pops into my head is, I AM ME.”
“I guess I’ll need more time, lol, because I can’t possibly sum myself up in a three word message.”
“I AM OLD”
“I AM BEAUTIFUL”
“I AM INDEPENDENT”
“I want this message on my t-shirt across my chest, I AM WOMAN, and my mask to read, HEAR ME ROAR. Stating the obvious? Absolutely. Making a statement? I hope so.”
“I AM RIGHT”
“I AM HUMAN”
“I AM A PERSON”
“I AM SO OVER THIS”
“I DON’T CARE”, the message said. I responded that wasn’t the assignment. The next comment was, I DON’T CARE! A third message followed: “I AM CARE FREE.”
Not sure it translates equally, but it’s better than being care less, right?
Thanks to everyone who contributed to this follow-up post. It was an insightful little social experiment. I wish I could have discussed the messages in depth, selfishly I want more. Maybe the context of a simple I AM statement, without explanation, gives greater insight to the viewer’s interpretation than the wearer’s meaning.
In closing, I’d like to say, I support you and your message.
YES, YOU ARE.
