Warm autumnal greetings to you from Washington DC.

Our world of privacy is rapidly changing.

Have you thought about what your expectations for privacy are?

Faces in a crowdRemember the expression of ‘being lost in a crowd’?

Will that even be possible with the increasing use of facial recognition software in public places?

If any of this is interesting to you, please read the BBC article entitled ‘Facial Recognition – the death knell of anonymity?’ at

I would be very interested in your thoughts on these.

1. Facial features and their associated meanings – the chin.

The chin shows the individual’s will power, endurance and aggressiveness. It is also an indication of the person’s orientation toward the world, i.e. whether outward-thrusting, impact-seeking, etc. or inward-withdrawn, reactive rather than pro-active. While a long chin indicates a strong will, grim determination and someone who will persistently pursue success, a short chin is indicative of a team player, someone who will avoid taking risks.

There are many more specific examples in the What’s In A Face? A Dictionary for Heart-Centered Face Reading by Michael Lincoln (f.k.a. Narayan Singh). This reference dictionary of facial features and their associated meaning can now be ordered online at http://www.talkinghearts.net.

2. Facial features and their associated meanings – chin tip features.

This area of the chin reflects the person’s relationships with other people in the way s/he is willing to integrate wills and priorities. An example would be a flat-tipped chin which is indicative of an individual who ‘goes with the flow’, taking things as they are. This person may be lacking in resourcefulness with the tendency to ‘settle for…’ rather than risk ‘rocking the boat’.
If you are interested in reading more details of these facial features and their associated meaning, I once again encourage you to study What’s in a Face? A Dictionary for Heart-Centered Face Reading described above.

3. Glenna’s reading of the August 2014 Face of the Month (www.glennatrout.com)

face_for_Aug_2014What a profound difference between his ‘social mask’ (his right side of the face) and the ‘real self’ (his left side of the face). There is more worry and sadness noticeable in his ‘social mask’ and more determination and vulnerability apparent in his private side. Determined, focused, intelligent, serious about personal responsibility and sad at what he sees in the world around him while being present and more comfortable in his own skin.

Michael Morton spent twenty-five years in prison having been wrongfully convicted of a crime he did not commit. Getting Life describes how he came to terms with the injustices and left prison without bitterness.Here is a link to a CBS interview with Mr. Morton:

4. FAQ’s

“I attended your workshop earlier in the year and really enjoyed myself. I have a question for you – how do you do the mirror imaging of photos? Does it require special software? I would love to get into it a bit more.”

Glenna replies – “To do the mirror images on the computer, I use PowerPoint and Adobe Photoshop (but any program that reverses an image will work). My method is to place three copies of the face photo onto a PowerPoint slide, then reverse the image in the photoshop program. I then paste two copies of the reversed image onto the same PowerPoint slide-making sure the reversed image is the same size as the original. With the crop tool in PowerPoint, I then crop half of each of the reverse images, placing the reverse right half face over one of the original images and locking it with the ‘group’ tool in PowerPoint to show the mirror image of the ‘social mask’ then placing the reverse left half of the face over a different original image (and ‘grouping’ it) to show the mirror image of the ‘private’ person.”
