The Art of the Shrug

Painting by Kristina Laurendi Havens. The woman in the painting looks like the person who first taught me the shrug.

I admire women who have perfected the art of the shrug. It is the right response to so many things (I won’t list them; I am leaving that to your imagination), nonverbally powerful:

neither fighting the information coming your way, nor faking fascination.

I only observe it in people who are real and want to be known as they are.

The shrug communicates: “There is not enough energy in here. Let’s move on to something more captivating, something more on my wave length.”

The difference between tolerance and thrill may be lost on many, but may it never be lost on you!
