Behind the mask

“Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.”
by Oscar Wilde

And now I would like to know which song you like best?

You sit around and I watch your face
I try to find the truth, but that’s your hiding place
You say you love me, but it’s hard to see

Good evening Claudia,
Great post - my fav song is the one with Eric Clapton & All stars :)
Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs x

I love the Oscar Wilde quotation,
so true
reminds me of when people have a few drinks, they loosen up and tell it
as it is!

Can't listen to the songs because the sound on this silly computer is jinxed,
I will go on the laptop later and listen!

Happy Friday my friend x

Funny isn't it how we can say more of what we think if we are using a mask or another persona?!

Eric Clapton one of my all time faves!


Interesting and so true! I've always liked Eric Clapton.

MJ..that says it all! :)

I prefer Eric Clapton.

I find too many people on the internet hide behind a mask.

If I had to pick...it would be MJ.

I would have to go with Michael Jackson!


@Eva - have a lovely weekend as well. And you chose like Peter did :)
@Fiona - Happy Saturday, hope not much rain in your part of the world!
@Sush - well yes, many times people hide behind masks since they believe they will be easier accepted
@Laura - one of the best guitarist ever!
@Jo - but of course!
@Darlene - they do?
@Susan - close call on this question!
@Kathy - like Susan :)

Hi Claudia. I guess we all hide behind a mask to a certain extent. My favourite would have to be the Eric Clapton one!

@Diane - so far Eric Clapton is leading :)

Thank you for your comments, I appreciate them all!


"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
