(Video link here.) This stop-action video tracking 5 years of one man’s appearance makes us wonder how much how we look, and what our style is, affects our experience and identity…
…And the many choices we can make about our appearance.
Going through airport security checkpoint a couple of weeks ago, the TSA agent looked at Sally’s passport picture and said, “Why did you change your hair?”
She kept staring down at the picture and then back at Sally…
Finally she said, “I liked you the old way better. Why did you change?”
H-e-l-l-0!!! Why did she change?!!!
Why NOT change?!
What do you think we’re here for?
