This week for my New Year’s Resolution I snuck in a quick visit to the Gardiner Museum to see their exhibit Transformation by Fire, which was ceramic arts by women victims of abuse. Apparently they just work for 11 days each year and it’s astonishing how beautiful and detailed and sophisticated the works of art from these novice artists were. Really worth checking out.
A slightly weird thing happened to me during my visit – and some of you who know me in real life maybe know this. Very often (and I’m talking frighteningly often) people will insist that we’ve met before, or that I look just like (so and so), or actually confuse me for someone they know. The frequency of these occurrences really creeps me out. People will even ask to take my picture because of it. Today the security guard wondered why I came back to the exhibit two days in a row, then insisted I had a twin, then went and got other security guards to affirm this, then asked me again if I had a twin. It is so stressful.
I do not. But who are all these people that look like me???
