 There are a lot of places you hear the word “face” used.

Face your fears.
He’s such a two-faced liar.
The Three Faces of Eve.
You have to face the facts ( or the consequences.)
She’s not just another pretty face.
I turned the corner and came face to face with my best friend.

Let’s face it.  These visages found at the Art Institute of Chicago aren’t your run-of-the-mill faces.  Even if they’re faces only a mother could love, it’s as plain as the nose on your face that they’re unique.  And which of us hasn’t felt the way that second face looks! But I could talk until I’m blue in the face.  To see what faces other bloggers have chosen, just click here.

You get the face you build your whole life, with work and loving and grieving and laughing and frowning.

Age should not have its face lifted, but it should rather teach the world to admire wrinkles as the etchings of experience and the firm line of character.

  1. This one caught my attention and prompted me to write about face time for my self, soul and spirit.

    Nice running use of “face”. None of that was new, but I never thought of it like that. Great choices for the prompt too. I like the masks the best. And, I’ll just let my face age however it likes.

    These are wonderful Janet!

    • Thanks, Nicole. Not sure how many entries I’ll be able to see this week, as two of the next three days I work and have something going on afterwards as well and then it will be Friday again. 🙂 I hope spring is coming along well in your part of the Midwest. Looks as though it was rather rainy here while we were gone. The plants are looking more and more like summer, but we’re still having the cooler spring temperatures.

        Yes my husband said it rained every single day while I was away and it actually rained a lot in Europe too! But since I’ve been back, it has been spectacular weather here in Minneapolis. Sunny, blue sky and 70s every day and 80-85 this weekend. I love the next few months in the midwest! It is what we all wait for!
