  1. Thanks for this here is my response

  2. How interesting, for a further contemplation upon these has revealed a third face in the shadows....

    It has a long nose and brought to mind the fairytail Pinocchio, whose nose grew when he told a lie...

    Perhaps we should be wary of the shadow side of being which is not either laughter or lament but untruth!
