Shadow puppet

"Maybe the only thing each of us can see is our own shadow.
Carl Jung called it his shadow work. He said we never see others.
Instead we see only aspects of ourselves that fall over them.
Shadows. Projections. Our associations."

-- Chuck Palahniuk

Self portrait 10-27-13

"What men call the shadow of the body is not the shadow of the body,
but the body of the soul."

-- Oscar Wilde, A House of Pomegranates

"How can I be substantial if I do not cast a shadow?
I must have a dark side also if I am to be whole."

-- C.G. Jung

This is a self portrait of me, as well as a portrait of my own shadow.

So if they're both me, then who's pulling the strings?
