< RM > story - The House of 1000 Mirrors

The House of 1000 Mirrors

Long ago in a small, far away village,
there was place known as the House of 1000
Mirrors. A small, happy little dog learned of
this place and decided to visit. When he
arrived, he bounced happily up the stairs to
the doorway of the house. He looked through
the doorway with his ears lifted high and his
tail wagging as fast as it could. To his great
surprise, he found himself staring at 1000
other happy little dogs with their tails wag-
ging just as fast as his. He smiled a great
smile, and was answered with 1000 great
smiles just as warm and friendly. As he left
the House, he thought to himself, "This is a
wonderful place. I will come back and visit it
In this same village, another little dog,
who was not quite as happy as the first one,
decided to visit the house. He slowly climbed
the stairs and hung his head low as he looked
into the door. When he saw the 1000
unfriendly looking dogs staring back at him,
he growled at them and was horrified to see
1000 little dogs growling back at him. As he
left, he thought to himself, "That is a horrible
place, and I will never go back there again."
All the faces in the world are mirrors.
What kind of reflections do you see in the
faces of the people you meet?
