I need opinions, please. Everybody look at the header. See it? What do you think? I love the quote, C.S. Lewis being my favorite author. The meaning - well, I'd like to be more naked here. Personality-wise, you know. My husband saw the header for the first time and gasped. Alright, he didn't necessarily GASP. But he was taken aback. He was a little put out by the word naked in my header, in a family friendly blog.
So is that word naked - twice - too much? It's right there. I thought about it quite a bit before making it a real and permanent part of my blog. It's perfect. No?
See, the irony is that I have a thing about nakedness. I'm modest. Please cover up. I don't care for naked people. At all. (Okay, naked babies are absolutely darling. They don't count.) Foul language is off-putting. Gore and violence do nothing for me. My writing group mocks me for it, but I don't mind. Any of the above in excess will cause me to turn off a movie, put down a book, walk out of a room. In moderation I tolerate. And I understand that other people can handle plenty of all of it. Just understand that I can't. And I don't pass judgment on those who can handle it. It's like, for me, being allergic. Or like tomatoes, mushrooms and olives. You may love them, but please don't make me eat them. More for you.
That being said, I love the form the word naked takes in the above quote. All these months of changing the quote in the header with every post, and this is the one which called to me, seemed the essence of what this blog should be about. Isn't always, but should be. But it says NAKED. Twice. Tell me. What do you think? Be naked about it, please.
Until I write again ...
P.S. Noble Pig (Hi Cathie!) asked me to post a shot of my favorite turtleneck, referenced yesterday, I linked to an older post, but had fun playing with Photoshop tonight. Heh. Oh, and the favorite turtleneck went into the give away bag this week. Losing weight, it's swallowing me whole. So this photo is a tribute to my all time favorite shirt. Anyone out there know how to tie dye?
