Uniquely Beautiful

Conventional beauty can be beautiful. But it can also be merely conventional and cease to be beautiful when the standard that measured it changes. Unique beauty, on the other hand, remains beautiful because its standard is forever itself. Have a great weekend, beautiful people!

    Lots of delightful and/or surprising sights here, Mitch. Think my favorite was the “musical-notes made visible.” Who knew they’d be so different from one another–and beautiful? (At first I thought I was looking at kaleidoscope images!)
