“… be or feel handsome …”

I have never known what it is to be or feel handsome; as a byproduct, I am fascinated by good looks, in much the same way that many people are fascinated by riches or fame. It is like getting to visit a foreign country or even travel outer space; I know by this age, I’ll almost certainly never get there, but, it is fun to imagine what it would be like.

  1. Good heavens, one would think it was Lyle Lovett who wrote this! Not at all, but here’s the thing: There’s a certain eye/cheek crinkle a man develops for his woman exclusively. It’s fair to say it’s riveting. When she sees that, “handsome” isn’t even a word..

  2. There’s a first time for everything. Why not for being handsome? It’s all in the mind!
    At the age of 70 I thought I might try a full beard, never having had so much as a whisker before. I may even get a job as Santa, but it will probably be 2 years before I qualify!
