Masks-- Real and Imagined

Three more little masked munchkins joined the menagerie this week.
They once again prove that looks can be deceiving.
For instance,
Kitty Kat, who is wearing a particularly wide cat-who-ate-the-canary grin, is actually a vegetarian.
Banjo, despite her uninvited musical accompaniment,
prefers Jazz to Bluegrass.
And Bonita actually has a very healthy appetite. Masks fool people.
And we all wear them, literally or figuratively.

(I prefer the literal ones, don't you.)

  1. I LOVE masks! And your masked characters are MARVELOUS, Jo! The banjo player cracked me up! Like you, I generally prefer literal masks. But sometimes it's good to mask things - like perpetual pain - even from ourselves. A mask keeps us pretending we feel good and sometimes we get so 'into' the character, we believe it. THAT kind of mask I don't mind. Thank you for always creating wonderful things and for making me think, smile, and ENJOY!
