BEAUTY CAN’T JUST BE SKIN DEEP

Beauty can’t be just skin deep. It has to go all the way down, even where no one will ever see it. (Steve Jobs) A supermodel walks down a catwalk and we all ooh and aah with wonder, awe, inspiration and admiration. That’s perfectly fine, no question about it but ...

I DON’T COME FROM ANY GARDEN

Epitome of word-play and fantasy by Lewis Carroll, “Alice in Wonderland” is his classic story, that was made into a movie and an animated film. “I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date.” The white rabbit, clad in a waistcoat and carrying a pocket watch, ran to slide down ...

Be your own kind of beautiful

BE YOUR OWN KIND OF BEAUTIFUL

How about challenging a cliché: Beauty is not in the eye of the beholder, beauty is in the beautiful. Consider wildflowers, springing in meadows with no set pattern or arrangement – wildflowers just bloom that way. Grass and weeds grow alongside, without stopping them from flourishing. Nothing is perfect about wildflowers, but ...
