It doesn't matter which mirror you look in. You'll only ever see yourself the way you see yourself. It's easy to say that that's all that matters,
but, it's something else to actually live it. It's funny, I just finished posing in my mirror after a tough workout and was not happy with my
progress. I am actually pretty ok with myself most of the time, but I have a goal to reach by late winter for some stuntwork in Pirates OTC 5&6.
Lot's of shirtless stuff, so this middle aged body has got a tough hill to climb. Otherwise, I do try to look at myself in the eyes when I look in
the mirror and see myself as a complete person and not look at the miles that have tracked across my face. When I speak to someone, I keep my eyes on
theirs. I search their eyes for the nuances of the story and after a short while and sometimes a little awkwardness, they start telling the story WITH
their eyes. I see it come alive and I hear their heart in their voice. They enjoy reliving the story more than simply reciting it and when it's all
done, it's like, well, without being rude, let's just say that the climax of the story is a little more intense. I began that practice when I was
touring as a young single guy in stunt shows. I found out that chicks really dug it when I payed attention to what they were saying. What I found out
was that I actually enjoyed listening to people more intensely. Win Win. So, I may not remember someone by how fat or skinny they are, but, if I ever
see your eyes again, I'll know who you are then.
Plus, it was always helpful when I was fighting. Guys tend to telegraph their next move through their eyes.
I guess I said all of that to say this; Keep your eyes bright, your smile wide and to heck with what people think of how skinny or fat, tall or short
that you are. But, ladies, do check the mirror to make sure you haven't tucked your dress into your pantyhose. LOL.
