Facial Recognition

Titling this post ‘Facial Recognition’ might be a stretch… To a large degree, this video blog is about recognition in general. More to the point, it’s about someone you’ve known professionally — in this case, our Dermatologist — for almost twenty years only to have her look straight at you and wonder who had just called out her name.

In her defense, I WAS wearing surgical gloves, my Indiana Jones hat and a black filtration mask… But, I knew who I was! At least I thought I did until it was obvious she had no idea who was standing in front of her.

Her response? “My G-d! You’ve lost so much weight I couldn’t recognize you!”

When I recovered, I started thinking about whether or not I would recognize me! After all, a lot has transpired since I last saw her — Not just physically, but in the deepest sense of who I am and what I’m all about.

Looking deep into that internal mirror is an exercise I would probably recommend to everyone I know… Hopefully, you will like what you see. And, if you don’t? Well, if you don’t you still have time to for a last minute make-over!
