Soul Searching -- Invitation to Write #73

For Writers:

A vampire cannot see its reflection in a mirror because it doesn’t have a soul, but for those of us that are mere mortals, we apparently have the power to look at our souls every time we gaze into a mirror.

So when see your reflection in the mirror as you brush your hair in the morning, do you see your soul? Or do you just see your physical body? What exactly does a soul look like any way?

I’m not a Biblical scholar by any means, but the word “soul” translates to “breathing creature” in Hebrew and “life’s breath” or “breathing” in Greek. As an experiment, go to the closest mirror right now and blow on it. Is what's left on the mirror the essence of your soul? Or is it just a bit of water vapor?

What does the concept of "soul" mean to you?

“Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.” – Zora Neale Hurston
