  1. What a magician.
    It’s interesting how the ideal of beauty has changed over time. Fair complexion, rosy cheeks and blond hair were associated with virtue in 16th century England, unlike dark, considered pretty nowadays, which was was the epitome of something mysterious, hidden, devilish, wicked. This means I’d have been evil incarnate had I lived in times of Spencer, and earlier. Go away scary witch, go away…

      1. Oh no it would not disappoint. I was only bringing Ruben up as another example of how art defined beauty. I am now old and, hopefully, wise enough to know better than to talk about my personal preferences in a public format.

      2. Thank you! I so appreciate hearing that. I am, most probably, one of the elder’s of this “tribe”. I used the phrase veteran, cosmic rocker to describe me to someone else.

    1. Except for the blond hair I would have been the epitome of there was that was considered fair. Makes me laugh because now I get endless shit for not having a tan. At some point my sass was so on point I started accusing people of being racist because they wouldn’t accept that I’m genetically incapable of tanning. Now I’m the scary witch.

      1. I recently ran across an amusing tidbit:

        In 17th century England women would use blue pencil to draw in veins on their neck, shoulders, and chest to emphasize their high birth.

        Huh. I must be very high born indeed!!
