…THROUGH THE EYES OF THE VISOR
Technically, the visor is used for the sole purpose of protection against elements of sun, fog, wind and rain – not to mention the all-important bug-diffuser! Some are clear tints, others are colored to suit one’s needs – they may even be artistically designed to match your personality!
Such as with the jacket, the pants and boots, the visor is now equally disguised as an added piece of jewelry to the headgear, to impress the overall look of the dress code and style.
But there’s more to the purpose of the visor than I think we give it credit for?! It is the “window” to the soul – the visible screen from which we can hide our invisible emotions, whether the “veil” is a full screen one, or offers only partial covering.
When the visor is down, you can choose to become anyone you wish to at that moment! You can be the archetypal villain, whose goal it is to forcefully oppose that of the hero, who is standing in your way – you plot and plan their defeat!
You might even take on the identity of the super hero, with extraordinary powers or abilities, exceptional skills using advanced equipment and technology. You have super strength, enhanced senses and will conquer the villain at all cost!
Looking through our personal screen, we see the world in such a way that it must make the most sense to us. We establish “vision” in the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination and wisdom.
You feel that although you can be seen, no one can “see” you – you’re invincible to the outside forces. You think you hold the advantage of being able to see everyone and everything and that no one can see you, watching them! Maybe you gleam him a look sitting in the vehicle parked next to you, or maybe you clutch her strut as she walks across the road? “The soul can speak through the eyes, and kiss with a look”…
Through the eyes of the visor, you can look carefully at what is there; look in all the corners, in the background and the forefront, look at the colors, the angles and the shapes. Can you open your mind to seeing more than you thought was there or can you imagine what might make the picture even better? After all, it’s your lens that determines what you see.
