Make-up and Make-believe

Have you ever felt tears forming right behind your eyes?
Have you ever cried, then re-applied your "face" trying to move on with your day, but still felt like there were salty tracks showing on your cheeks?

I cried today. And even though it was out of joy, there is something sobering about tears.

I also spent some time in confession today - not with a priest, and not about sin - rather about truth. Speaking these truths also brought me to a very somber place. This also resulted in some small joy - still not quite the kind you might think.

There are surely times for dancing and singing, but sometimes it is best to speak truth, be quiet, or let the flood gates open wide.
