confession {lies}

(click on image to enlarge) this piece was inspired for both artwords & mixed media memoirs. the topic for artwords this week is confession & the topic for mmm is about lies...
my confession about telling lies
stems usually from my desire to keep the peace. or out of fear... i don't want to hurt anyone's feelings... so i hide my true feelings. i avoid confrontation/fights/bad scenes like the plague! i want to diffuse tension, to keep things light, to remain neutral, to minimize stress, to be nice, to save face, to get along, to stay sane. that's why i tell lies. not all the time mind you.
i'd rather tell the truth...
it's just that certain situations call for it or when i need
to feel "safe".
{btw, these are what are written to form the figure in this piece...
i apologize that my scanner did not pick up on the handwritten text} Posted by Picasa
