My youngest says FB is one of those masks. That's probably true, much of the time.
But I think of the masks in this quote as being more real, more honestly revealing than what one does on Facebook. More intimate.
Masks are an interesting concept to me. I am aware that I have lots of them. I've discarded a few too. But some are still absolutely necessary. I wonder if others have a repertoire of masks, and are they aware of them?
Also, maybe they aren't always totally deceptive. Maybe they are crafted so as to reveal what we are capable of revealing, while hiding what we can't bear to have seen?
