  2. Thank you for liking “Sunday Tranquility” and “Remembering Past Battles.” Great poem! πŸ™‚ The pictures of models we see in magazines and advertisements are usually retouched in some way, and people feel pressured to achieve the unrealistic ideals created by these Photoshopped images. Some people even undergo extensive plastic surgery to the detriment of their health in the hope of looking perfect. Last year, I commented on a post about people getting rear end implants in Brazil. The blogger and I had a good laugh over my comment that archaeologists would excavate a twentieth-century graveyard in the distant future and find skeletons riddled with silicone implants. πŸ™‚

    1. Very well said my dear friend, there is immense beauty in this world and I believe we are just exploiting it to sell anything and everything. I think plastic surgery should be used to correct disfigured faces and parts but should not be allowed to alter perfectly beautiful bodies and faces!

      1. I like your keen observation about the exploitation of beauty in this world. It is sad that beauty has become a tool of manipulation that allows some industries to prey upon people’s insecurities about themselves and about growing older. The cookie-cutter or one-size-fits-all standards set by society make it difficult for people to see and appreciate their own unique and beautiful qualities.

        I agree with your thoughts about plastic surgery. I also do not object to plastic surgery for someone who is disfigured by an accident or a disease or for someone who was born with a defect like a cleft palate.

      2. So am I. I think that is why I like being out in nature even if it is only in my backyard or going on a short walk down the street during my break at work. When I am outside away from my computer and mass media, I can see and appreciate beauty without being told what is beautiful. πŸ™‚
