He would see faces in movies, on t.v., in magazines, and in books
He thought that some of these faces might be right for him
and through the years, by keeping an ideal facial structure fixed in his mind
or somewhere in the back of his mind
that he might, by force of will, cause his face to approach those of his ideal
The change would be very subtle
it might take ten years or so
Gradually his face would change its shape
a more hooked nose, wider, thinner lips, beady eyes, a larger forehead
He imagined that this was an ability he shared with most other people
They had also molded their faced according to some ideal
Maybe they imagined that their new face would better suit their personality
or maybe they imagined that their personality would be forced to change to fit the new appearance
This is why first impressions are often correct
Although some people might have made mistakes
They may have arrived at an appearance that bears no relationship to them
They may have picked an ideal appearance based on some childish whim, or momentary impulse
Some may have gotten half-way there and then changed their minds
He wonders if he too might have made a similar mistake
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
