  • I've started drawing a smile on my masks.  I was out the other day and this man in a store did me a kindness.  I remarked to him that one of the most frustrating things about the masks is that one can't just smile and nod one's head to acknowledge a kindness.  You're never sure if it was recognized.  I guess this doesn't really do that but still, it seems to pick up everyone's spirits - just like a real smile.  Interesting that.  I just feel like everyone is becoming even more determinedly dull than ever.

    Somehow, I am guessing that those that are so upset about wearing a mask are not upset because it hides their sunny smiles.

    Speaking of it, I really appreciate the title of this category.  It seems to reflect on the determinedly dull nature of the author of the title, being above it all and such.

  • One thing I’ve noticed about wearing a mask is when someone does smile at you for a small kindness, like letting them come past in a busy aisle, you can still see they have smiled as it changes the shape of, and lights up, their eyes.
