    I knew three great beauties in my life well enough top know they were at lest as much cursed by it as not .

    One let her brain atrophy as all she needed arrived upon her suppliants backs.

    Another simply felt it natural that she should cash in by marring for wealth. I don't know the fate of the third
    All were relentlessly pursued. Everyone wants to own a beautiful woman. She is the fineness gift of success

    .
    Here is what is entirely left out world wide in the appraisal of beautiful women.

    All wealth isolates, the greater the wealth, the more it isolates.

    If everyone has a dollar and I have a thousand, we don't live in the same world.
    We don't share the same possibilities,

    If most IQ's are under 120 and I finish high school at age 7
    Who can I begin to talk to?

    When most faces are handsome or pretty and I marry a radiant beauty
    desired by all, who will befriend me, who could I ever truly trust?

    Great wealth always isolates.

    Understanding this we come to know that beautiful woman are among the loneliest people in the world.
    Are among the most abused.

    They must wear the mark of their isolation, they must show what separates them from their sisters every where they go. Almost Evey married woman they meet does a quick calculation and decides that this is competition they don't need.

    And then she must deal with the spite of the envious who see none of her difficulties, but want her advantages.

    Most forms of wealth offer some form of protection. A good mind most often will see trouble coming and cut it off. Money can hire good minds to protect itself.

    Few curses bring calamity like being born with a beautiful face without much of a brain with which to protect yourself. Everyone wants you. everyone wants the best deal they can get.

    "There is a sorrow at the heart of things."

    This world claws and grabs at all that is desirable never to thereby become itself desirable..

    We have established that wealth isolates. Oddly the flip side of the coin is that Wealth attracts.
    But seldom are they who are attracted by wealth desirable companions.

    So there she is!

    A woman of inestimable beauty glowing like a light from heaven, but heaven has it's great heights that none can climb to protect it.

    beauty has called them all to her and all want her, all have good uses to put her to.
    But who could ever see past the depth of her eyes or the light that leaps to find her hair, put aside ones desire of her
    "and say hello in there." "Hello."
    John Prine.

    When the mask that hides you is beauty, you remain hidden none the less.
    As who wants to see past beauty to the one so held captive?

    Lovers over look with ease a chipped tooth, find endearing a crooked smile, they see past the outer flaws to their beloved within and behind a smile made perfect
    by seeing behind it.
    Beauty always stands in need of protection. beauty can not defend it self from the armies of the desirous. Perhaps in the end all forms of wealth are just crosses we need to bear.

    What a deep and expressive "expandment" beyond my simple acknowledgement of beauty's desirability. I gotta tell ya, you are a great teacher ofttimes!

    In my immaturity(which has lasted beyond its proper pull-by date in an embarrassing number of ways) I assumed that beautiful women had life by the tail. My cousin who I haven't seen since she was seven informed me that my assumption was incorrect. She is about thirty yoa now. My step brother informs me that on a scale of one to ten she is a solid eleven. As she was quite beautiful at seven I have no doubt that he speaks the truth.

    You are absolutely right, we really wish to possess beauty. As we cannot possess any person other than ourselves the more successful of men strive for something that is unattainable. But do they know that or do some genuinely believe in possessing someone? What unhappiness they set themselves up for.

    It's said that if you marry for money you will earn every penny of it. I'm certain that this is true. It's also said that a pretty girl is like a melody, I agree with this old saw. Ergo, a beautiful woman must be like a symphony. Could one really hope to own such a collection of say seventy different instruments playing independently?

    @George, this is for you:
    The incredibly talented Robben Ford. A master, but because he doesn't play 'popular music' isn't given enough credit. I've see him a number of times in NY and once in Austin, and he is absolutely fantastic.



    Here he is, playing the exact same guitar years earlier. Extraordinary phrasing and tone, an awesome player:

    Hoo bruddah, what a wonderful musician to listen to! I heard him and enjoyed him many years ago. Yet he dropped off my radar for a long time. I needed your reminder of what a great player he is! Thank you very much for finding this! You saw him many times, that's wonderful.

    His wrinkles attest to a difficult life, or maybe that's just the way he aged?

    I like the Wallflowers, especially the first and second albums.
    You can tell the apple didn't fall far from the tree with Jakob Dylan.

    And now I woke up. Jakob Dylan, eh. Glad he doesn't really look like his dad.
