Since I snap photos of people for hire, I have run into many people who don’t believe they are beautiful. I’ve written before about laugh lines and fat bulges that are evidence of character and experience not just something to “take care of.”
We don’t listen to our friends or loved ones, who tell us of our beauty; we believe what we see in magazines and on television and on the big screen. And since I know a thing or two about Photoshop, I’d like to tell you that it’s all a lie! But believe me, I can make a 40-year old woman look 25 with some good lighting and a clone tool.
I have recently found this uplifting blog called Kind-Over-Matter. They posted this wonderful video from a Speak Out Spoken Word Competition.
Let PrufRock tell you the truth.
I hope you listen. SPL
