What Kind Of Reflections Do You See In The Faces Of The People You Meet?

Jun 1, 2004
Long ago in a small, far away village, there was
place known as the House of 1000 Mirrors. A small,
happy little dog learned of this place and decided
to visit. When he arrived, he bounced happily up
the stairs to the doorway of the house. He looked
through the doorway with his ears lifted high
and his tail wagging as fast as it could. To his
great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000
other happy little dogs with their tails wagging
just as fast as his. He smiled a great smile, and
was answered with 1000 great smiles just as warm
and friendly. As he left the House, he thought
to himself, "This is a wonderful place. I will
come back and visit it often."

In this same village, another little dog, who was
not quite as happy as the first one, decided to
visit the house. He slowly climbed the stairs and
hung his head low as he looked into the door.
When he saw the 1000 unfriendly looking dogs
staring back at him, he growled at them and was
horrified to see 1000 little dogs growling back
at him. As he left, he thought to himself, "That
is a horrible place, and I will never go back
there again."

All the faces in the world are mirrors. What kind of reflections do you see in the faces of the people you meet?
