Nervously the young actress inspected her face in her compact’s mirror. This was an important audition and she wanted to look just right. There was a fine layer of moisture atop her lip, but she knew just what to do. She patted on some face powder, applied lipstick, gave it a quick blotting, and smiled shyly at her reflection. The pearls around her neck and the lavender cashmere sweater brought out the highlights in her blond bob, and accentuated her perky slim figure. She might not be a buxom temptress, but the source of her allure lay in her beguiling delicate features and her spirit that seemed to shimmer with an inner luminescence. She didn’t fit a specific “type” and although that made her unique, it also meant that her audience needed to look upon her longer before they fell under her spell. Once she did charm them however, they were hooked – for good!

She gave a quick flick of her hair, adjusted the hem of her skirt, and opened the door to make her entrance.

Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.

We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.

    1. Thank you dear Aina. I’m hoping my creative exercises can turn into something more. I am working towards that sunny day when it all comes together in a book. When I do, I shall reserve a copy for you!!! xxxooo
