FOWC with Fandango — Illusion

I loved to watch David Copperfield on TV with his amazing illusions.
The magic wasn’t in knowing how it was done, but the wonder of it being done.
All of us create an illusion, falsehood or deceitful belief as we make our way through life, which is nothing to do with magic.

People present an illusion of their true self to others for a variety of reasons:
The laughing joker who is really insecure and nervous, the doting wife who is bullied and abused behind closed doors, the loud and flash with the cash trying to impress as they get deeper into debt, the Grey Man who filters in and out of society unnoticed by most, but noticing everything around him.
Are any of us truly as we appear?

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Not only we present a facade to others by usually to ourselves too. Mostly we are under an allusion regarding our true selves.
