Barriers

There’s a dampening field on my mood. It’s called a face mask. A face mask numbs the muscles in my face. How does that sci-fi line go? “In space, no one can hear you scream.” In a mask, no one can see you feel.

Sure, there are practical reasons. It itches. It scratches. It’s heavy upon your cheeks.

But add to that a couple of ear phones and you’re in your own world. If I ever put on sunglasses I think I’ll open a wormhole to an alternate dimension.

And I find my expressionlessness (long word, my spell checker says it’s real) dampens my mood. There must be some science that proves that not being able to express a feeling impacts your ability to feel it.

And is there another science that says not seeing other faces has the same effect.
