Day 1592: Mug Shots

My first shot at writing today’s post is defining the term “mug shot.”

mug shot
noun: mugshot
a photograph of a person’s face made for an official purpose, especially police records.
humorous
any photograph of a person’s face.

If this mug wrote that “mug shot” definition, I would have added this:

humorous

any  photograph of a mug

… because I collect and also photograph mugs.

I wanted to start off this mug-shots post with that particular mug shot, because

  • we’re going to move, so we need to pack up all our belongings, including our many mugs,
  • I’ve been struggling to balance trust lately, because of all the mugs and mugging in the news, and
  • if you took a mug shot of my face, it might show worry, acceptance, fear, contentment, confusion, trust, distrust, anticipation, anger, hope, excitement, sadness, or happiness, depending upon the moment of the mug shot.

I think it’s helpful to show on your mug what you’re feeling inside.

Because I knew that today’s post was going to be “Mug Shots,’ I took lots of  mug shots yesterday.

That last mug shot inspires me to share this version of “I’ve Just Seen a Face.”

I’ve just seen a face in the mirror and it looks very grateful, for all who helped me create this post and — of course! — for YOU.
