Beauty of course...what else.
i had once something very beautiful but now it's in my memory and safe for eternity in my storage and i would like to revisit my Precious once again. For the simple fact that so many conflicting thoughts about beauty is clouding my senses and i need some clarity.
i also seem to be getting worried about my own transition in which i find beauty more in objects, animals, birds, insects, trees, plants, and among them what some would call weeds, also rocks and even any place that has nothing but barrenness. As far as people are concerned nothing really feels beautiful and true any more although i do keep lying and faking appreciation. Don't know why i have to do it but can't be too harsh on myself now. Just like the rest of it maybe we are all conditioned to appreciate artificiality more.
i look at myself too in the mirror and have noticed that the plain me is no longer any beauty to reckon with. But with the help of some facade in the garb of a trendy attire matched with some artificiality which is commonly known as eye-liner, lip gloss and some accessories, shoes included i sure do look The Who that can easily grab some envious attention plus compliments to her credit.
i look at the mirror and chide the plain myself me with what he said, " There are no bad pictures, that's how your face looks sometimes."
i question about looking common and fat thus feeling less important and once again i hear his words, " The lord prefers common- looking people. That is why he made so many of them."
Sure since i am talking about beauty and since the movie is on my mind i can't help thinking about beautiful Precious and Abraham Lincoln.
" A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture everyday of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul."
i dig into this and remember the luring ads in the newspapers and what comes to my mind at once is that nature does not need any make up, or any operation to look beautiful. It just is. "Beauty is not caused. It is."
