"That's what real love amounts to-letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending-performing. You get to love your pretense. It's true, we're locked in an image, an act-"Jim Morrison (1943-1971)

While these gorgeous white roses appear to be freshly cut from the garden, a single touch will immediately tell you they are fabulous fakes!

Maybe it doesn't matter that they bear no alluring fragrance or that they lack softness or subtlety as long as they appear to be real? Imagine a wedding or social event, the room overflowing with spectacular artificial flowers. Picture that same place filled with artificial, pretentious people. The reality is we all have our moments of pretense. The truth is that we don't fool anyone, especially not ourselves.

Whether it's flowers or people, we all sense the real from the imitation. Everyone responds to a genuine smile, a warm hug and words of truth when they are spoken from the heart. So why pretend to be anything other than your genuine, authentic self? No matter where someone else is coming from, BE REAL, and watch the illusions disappear and the meaningful connections begin.BEST-PHOTO
