A Costume that would channel my true innermost self…. I am not sure I know everything about my true innermost self. I like to think I know parts but I think I am still learning. I will tell you about the positive aspects or ones that I aspire to. The different characters are: the Idealist, the Dreamer, the Comic, the Romantic, the Observer, the Imaginer and the Adventurer ( usually armchair variety or in my mind 🙂 )
A costume would be like one of Gertrude Bell.
I have always liked strong women characters as portrayed by the likes of Katherine Hepburn or Angelina Jolie. I aspire to be courageous.
Addendum: I love this post on Senior Planet about costumes. Very funny!
I like what you wrote, Debbie, including what you said about aspiring to be courageous. Here’s a quote by Maya Angelou to which you might relate:
“One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.”

I have realized that–even in my blog–I wear a mask. As you say here, there is more than one type of character that each of us aspires to. I love your photo of the dreamy woman at the laptop, by the way.

Thanks Sandi. Yes I liked her image too. I was waiting to find a post where I could use it.
