There are deflections of light by glass
shattered into points so small, I can even renew your skin!!!!
By the thrashing, sifting and smoothing out of tone,
colour, shade and brightness.
Your face can start again, would you like me to begin?
To process, your spots and scars and marks
and even touch-up the make-up.
Is she real? They will ask.
From the gloss of the page, even you believe the appeal.
Even use the same chips, every day in a different way
but carry the technological leap and
buy the clothes or the music or the movie
because light was distorted
to condition the way that you feel!!!

    to be perfect…no blemishes….no dark circles…..at the touch of a photo software…to be thinner? no problem….no diet necessary..longer legs?…..on paper at least……..No wonder young girls are so insecure about their looks…The lie on the page deceives them..But still…..we can\’t stop ourselves looking and sighing…..(me anyway)…and although you know it\’s false it still \’draws\’ you…

    Frightening, isn\’t it? Nothing seems real anymore, except the artificial. To be honest, I really don\’t think that perfection is so pleasing; I prefer quirkiness, a lived-in face full of character.
    Thanks for your comments on Louis\’  future biking career, very witty! Seeing as the little man won\’t be 3 until Christmas Eve, he has plenty of time to make up his own mind…..and he won\’t want to be hanging out with us oldies.
    Enjoy your weekend,
    Hugs, Ronnie. XXX
