In Praise of Men

There are certain movements men do that I can see how graceful they are. More graceful than females do. It’s their feminine side that they do not want to admit.

They are beautiful. Beautiful in the sense that they don’t have to prove their masculinity. The beauty that oozes with sublime humility where fellow-men can watch with quiet admiration.

Where is the beauty in them?

The beauty exists in my mind how rounded they are. Not just how nice they are to stop, pause and be photographed. It is how gracious they are in accepting a stranger in their environment.

Emerging elegantly from the depth of an ancient tree enriches how life mysteriously unfolds my memory of Cuba ever so gracefully.

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair.”

Audrey Hepburn

I chopped my hair before I left for India. Short, very short. From long to short. Quite an extreme.

Nope, this is not me. But someone just addressed me Audrey Hepburn.  Flattery will take you nowhere.

Note to self: must dye hair, maybe.

Quote and UnQuote

The human soul is hungry for beauty;
we seek it everywhere,
in landscape, music, art, clothes,
furniture, gardening, companionship,
love, religion, and in ourselves.
No one would desire not to be beautiful.
When we experience the beautiful,
there is a sense of homecoming.

~John O’Donohue
