love thursday: beauty, redux

Photographed with Nikon D300, 60mm macro lens, and Kodak Duaflex.


Thanks to all of you who shared the descriptions of the most beautiful people you've come across in yesterday's comments.  You confirmed what I've always suspected:  the people we find most beautiful are rarely (although, sometimes) categorized in the physical descriptions of beauty that society dictates; more often than not, their beauty is defined by something more ... or sometimes, their beauty is indefinable. 

It kind of makes you think, though, doesn't it?  Perhaps when we think in terms of our own beauty, we should broaden that definition to the one we use for other people.  Perhaps instead of focusing on whether or not we have the perfect nose, or perfect waistline, or perfect pectorals, or even perfect feet, perhaps it makes more sense to spend the time to discover that the source of our beauty is something else. 

Maybe even something indefinable.

Happy Love Thursday, everyone.  Please leave your stories or your links to images or words of love in the comments, below.

And my love-filled wish for you is that, at some point today, you realize how beautiful you are.
