Can you tell the mood of a human being just by looking at him/her?
Sometimes it seems quite obvious how a person feels inside and sometimes your counterpart looks like a complete enigma.
Mastering this discipline would be very helpful for using it on your own character also.
If you are confused by your own thoughts and not able to sort them out you could just look in the mirror. You would simply observe the guy at the other side of the mirror and get a clue what is going on in your own head or soul.
I saw this monkey yesterday in the Nuremberg zoo and kept looking at it for quite a while.
First of all I was impressed about how similar the mimic was compared to us Homo Sapiens.
The animal seemed to be very tired. Maybe tired by life. It reminded me at the kind of tiredness you sometimes feel when you are very sad.
On the other side, the way the monkey held its arms looked kind of peaceful.
The longer I looked the stronger grew the suspect that the monkey isn't sad but just deep in monkey-thoughts. I liked the idea that the animal's mind was strolling back to some bright moments.
Look close - don't you think it is possible that the facial expression is the one of the moment when a loved one strokes over your head.
As always I just don't know and I am damn sure that I am kind of a rooky when it comes to deep down into the mind of friends.
For now a leftover from that monkey observation scene is the question whether the folks around me are able to "read" me. If yes, what would they see?
