"The true inner self must be drawn up like a jewel from the bottom of the sea, rescued from confusion, from indistinction, from immersion in the common, the nondescript, the trivial, the sordid, the evanescent" - Seeds of Contemplation, Thomas Merton (ph. by Alexandra Antoce)
I'm freckly. I hated it when I was little but then when I was about 12 my Mum left a copy of Vogue on my bed. The cover girl had a VERY freckly face. It was a close up shot and she was stunning. It changed my attitude towards freckles forever. My 3 year old daughter is just developing her freckles now - I will do the same thing for her if she doesn't like them. Hers are ADORABLE.
