Bal Masque


The evening that our cruise ship left Venice, there was a Masquerade Ball  aka Bal Masque.  It was fun to see all of the colorful and unusual masks!

Of course, Venice is famous for their masks…

 “The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are.  You trade in your reality for a role.  You trade in your sense for an act.  You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange put on a mask.  There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level.  It’s got to happen inside first.”  ~Jim Morrison

  2. Philosophical inquiry on the wearing of the masks–do people change when they are in the mask? Did you notice other new good or bad personality attributes? Curious, as I could never imagine being in such a mode. My question applies to someone staying sober with the mask on, not if they have drank a lot.
