Mirror and the voice of conscience

Week 4 Mirror - 52 Weeks Photography Challenge

More than a Mirror on the wall

The mirror I looked at reminds me of the "watcher", the man in the mirror challenges the better in me. He questions my not-so-very-best decisions and asks me not to get carried away with my whims and fancies.

The man in the mirror may barely acknowledge my accomplishment with a subtle nod but he does not give me atta-boy. Yet he is never shy to call me out when no one else wants to. The man in the mirror faithfully plays the role of calling spade a spade with me without reservations.

He cannot be praised nor can he be bribed to say any less. The man in the mirror's conscience is clear and he wants to school me the same. The man in the mirror is my conscience.

Three wise Monkey's pictorial maxim is a form of faithful representation of a proverbial principle

The three wise monkeys embody the proverbial principle "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil". The three monkeys are Mizaru, covering his eyes, who sees no evil; Kikazaru, covering his ears, who hears no evil; and Iwazaru, covering his mouth, who speaks no evil.
