Blank face or "Mindless Mime".
(Click picture for larger view [if you dare])

I really couldn't decide whether I wanted this to be a much more serious post than the setting of the picture truly reflects or if it should be blatantly funny. So I found three different quotes: one serious, one moderately profound if you think about it long enough, and the third just plain funny (and because I thought this face stuff made her look like a mime).
"Perhaps our eyes are merely a blank film which is taken from us after our deaths to be developed elsewhere and screened as our life story in some infernal cinema or dispatched as microfilm into the sidereal void." ~ Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)
"The mind is like a TV set - when it goes blank, it's a good idea to turn off the sound." ~ unknown
"Last night I played a blank tape at full blast. The mime next door went nuts." ~ Steven Wright (b.1955) Canadian comedian
Nyssa was almost 13 in this picture; her hair was in it's shortest state ever. For some reason she put a masque on her face that turned white when dry. This face does not suggest she is annoyed, angry, happy, surprised, sad, or concentrating; her eyes, face and thus her mind simply look blank. I ended up using this picture as part of her birthday party invitation.
