Re: warning: looking too long into That Face and Those Eyes could...

Wow, Mary! What paean of praise! I know what you mean about this face making one want to pour it out (praise, that is). His face is sort of the Annapurna or Grand Canyon or Northern Lights of faces. To my aesthetic tastes, it's the tops. Faces don't get any more gorgeous.

Funny, that he's a man. I know a lot of readers might think that's an odd remark, especially if they are slashers, but I spent my girlhood (3-10 years old?) drawing a lot, and I always drew what I thought most beautiful: women and horses. Never men. I drew a lot of angels, true, but I always thought angels were female. I was shocked when a lady at Sunday School told me all angels were men. Whaaaah...???? Not only did I not like the idea of my own gender being shut out of angel-hood, but men were boring-looking and un-beautiful.

In Frolijah, I think God has finally satisfied my aesthetic cravings in one person. He's as strong, well-shaped, valiant and sturdy as a horse, but as beautiful as a woman, in terms of delicacy of line and colour, and silky textures.

Oh, what a dream come true!
