We all would like to believe that quaint saying, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, but how true and meaningful is that phrase when the beholder has been brainwashed, so to speak, into subscribing to the belief that beauty is the artificial look we see on glamour mags, in TV commercials, and even in some children’s books?
