And this is why I cannot bear it when women get plastic surgery . . . and ending up looking so falsely smoothed out. They lose all of their interesting lines -- all of their character!

Tessa,
Thank you for visiting me at sixtyfivewhatnow.blogspot.com

The woman speaks volumes.

Reya Mellicker said...

It's gorgeous. I agree with you that all faces are beautiful, unless the soul gazing out from behind that face isn't.

Beth Kephart said...

OH, yes.

Yes.

Your intelligence transcends—across an ocean, in my case.

Beautiful in form and color, Tessa!
And, as already mentioned, we women are a bunch of intricate and complex characters, hallelujah:)

Hope you've fully recovered from your flu! Take it easy until you do.

I hope you have recovered from the flu now. Sorry you were feeling sick. Sorry I'm only finding out about it now. I wasn't able to catch up with all my fave blogs last week. Take care :)
