    I like it, Bonnie! You know what struck me while reading your post was the emphasis on the word “normal”. I guess I feel like we’re being taught (through “marketing”, I’ll say, for lack of a better term) that “normal” actually isn’t beautiful. Aging, skin imperfections, wrinkles, bruises, scars, some body fat, differing body shapes: all normal…all beautiful… Both.
    I’m normal. So why does my normalcy make me feel like a freak sometimes?!

    Another question to ponder: What’s wrong with being a freak, anyway? ;)

    Thanks, Mina. :)

    Nice post Bonnie. I just watched that documentary on babies this week too. It was beautiful! I was also struck by the Namibian women. Their way of parenting and being was just so pure. I love the sense of community, how they are so hands on with their children all the time and how they still nurse their toddlers :) Their babies seemed to me to be so much happier in contrast to the others. I try my best to live my life the same way and see a lot of myself in their physical form. I think they are absolutely beautiful! I guess I must me too :) Actually, I have long thought that a person’s beauty stems the most from their self confidence and/or absence of shame in their physical appearance.
