The other day, I thought somebody gave me a dirty look. When I perceive somebody giving me a dirty look, I can feel dirty. That’s why I wrote these lyrics for my latest original song, What are Other People Thinking About You?

I look at the world with gratitude, every day, so thanks to all who helped me create this “dirty looks” post and — of course! — to YOU, for looking at it.
