141. Face 

 

Pareidolia (parr-i-doh-lee-ə) is a psychological phenomenon involving a stimulus wherein the mind perceives a familiar pattern of something where none actually exists. The other day I saw a face staring at me from my shower wall; A noseless, pointy female face. Of course it wasn’t really there, but what was extremely peculiar was that when I sent the above photo to my family and friends, not a single one could see the face in the wall. 

So my one question today is, can you see the face in the wall? (See photo above) 

(And if not, then am I going mad?) 

Either way, it inspired this haiku: 

Is she there or not?

May have lost my mind or its

      1. When you say ‘our’ do you mean everyone or just us because we’re mad? I don’t know what’s ‘normal’ for other people haha
