Inner Beauty

Last night my dear hostess was sorting through a massive pile of photographs, organizing them into separate boxes, in prepartion for her writing her memoirs. I spotted four or five copies of this picture, taken by a famous photographer when she was a young woman. I told her I just HAD to have one because it is literally stunning, and evocative, and lovely, and she said of course, and she wondered if perhaps another photograph taken at the same time, which was on the cover of one of her first books, was better. I said oh, no, I prefer this one because it more accurately reflects your inner beauty. Of which there is an abundance. Darling!
