Weekly Wrap-Up 0307

Weekly Wrap-Up #45 - Beauty

1. What is your definition of "beauty"? Has this changed over time? Beauty is what comes from inside a person. It has nothing to do with a person's looks. With some people, inner beauty is quite apparent. With other people, you have to just be patient and let it come out on its own. Of course, my take on beauty has changed over time. Superficial things mean less and less to me the older I get.

2. Who (famous or not famous) do you think is beautiful? Why? I'll go with the not so famous and say both of my daughters. Even though they pretty much turned out how I suspected they would, they still continue to amaze me with their inner beauty.

3. Is it possible to be both beautiful and ugly? How? Oh, absolutely! A person can be drop dead gorgeous on the outside, and totally ugly on the inside. But! All hope is not lost. Even the most bitter can change for the better. Sometimes they just need to be touched by someone else.

4. Why does society place so much emphasis on beauty? Will this ever change? Why or why not? If you mean people featured in fashion magazines and catalogs and the like, I tend to not put a lot of stock in what society thinks is beauty.

5. How does beauty vary from culture to culture? Is there a particular culture's definition of beauty that you admire? Why? I don't really know how to answer this. What's beautiful to one person may not be so beautiful to another. Let the world go ‘round.
