Get an exorcist!

(new bottles-vases by Gary Rith)

Yesyesyes, groovy pots, eh?  You are thinking "I like how Gary uses a teardrop shape to make nice bottles, and I love his colors--such nice greens and blues!" and I thank you for thinking that. :)

MORE important, though, is the dream I had just before waking and sitting down here--I looked in the mirror to brush my hair (which I do at most twice a year-my barber was appalled to hear that I literally crawl out of bed, look at my hair, do nothing, and get ON WITH my day...short curly hair is like that, you know?) and what I saw in the mirror was NOT ME.

The person looking back was 20-ish, had hair I have never had, sort of a thick helmet of straight reddish-blonde hair, with close-set blue eyes (mine are hazel) and freckles.

I looked in the mirror and said "THAT IS NOT ME, I don't look like that, do I?".

WTF does that mean?  It means cool things, perhaps:
Changing ones face or head: Changing ones attitudes or decision about something; being uncertain or ‘two faced’. Having different aspects of your personality or seeing another side of yourself. Change the wording to fit seeing someone else with changing face – your to their.

Ah, perhaps, then I was changing my attitudes (I doubt it) or looking at another aspect of my personality (I doubt that too)
OR!  At the risk of seeming like a flake, you have heard me say many times that I feel like I travel in my dreams into other people's minds and lives.  There. I wandered through the brain of a 20 year old last night....

OR...dare I say that January is named after the two-faced god, Janus. Seems he might have had a bit of influence as well...heads or tails?
