Everyone says, “stay safe.” Or you read the altruistic PC message, “wearing a mask isn’t about you, it’s about keeping your fellow man safe from your germs.” Human nature says, “what’s in it for me.”

Nobody talks about how you feel wearing the mask, the psychological impact it has on you. I believe the impact goes deeper than the 6 foot ‘social distancing.’ Maybe it makes us more like 6 miles apart.

Have we forgotten how much nonverbal communication we do with our fellow human that speaks volumes? Just a brief look to friend or stranger says the whole story about a subject at hand. That’s lost with a mask. I’ve lost count on how many well-meaning silent messages I’ve gotten from kindly strangers that kept me from making a mistake.

Personally, I feel completely closed off from people, just objects I have to get around. They might as well be a pole I maneuver around going about my business. No more do I have a pleasant conversation with a stranger where I’ve gleamed something new and useful, and most of all, value the encounter.

As much as I hate wearing a mask, I thank my daughter for making one I can breathe in, not like those horrible blue and white, choke the life out of me masks. And hopefully, some day, my phone will recognize me again.

Notes: Opening the 4 mask stitched template, solid paper 4 as the background and solid paper 2 for the masks. After playing around with filters on the photo on the bottom of the page, placed it and blended. Placing the fotoblendz, I clipped my selfie to it. Bringing in 3 masks from and stitched mask page, I arranged those on the left side, clipping the photo to each and using different blend modes on the masks.

Transfers were added on each side of the page and various brushes fleshed out the page. Journaling was brought into the white space as well as the word art was placed. STAY SAFE OUT THERE!
