Curves are everywhere in Nature. I can’t think of any example of truly straight lines in Nature, with the exception of crystals. Even pine needles are gently curved.
I love the graceful elegance of curves. I’ve always envied people with naturally curly hair and marveled at the possibilities that medium allowed. I would arrange my youngest daughter’s hair for hours…if she’d let me.
In appreciation of Nature’s curly hair, I will play with botanical images. Like yucca…
…and fern……and redwood bark, believe it or not,…
…and the beautiful, slender curves of grass.
I have no deep desire to make the curvy straight, the rough places plain, nor to inflict geometrical precision on the surprising and unpredictable. I want Life to be unfettered, loose and free-flowing — at least in my head. In daily behavior, though, I’m still a straight-haired practical person. And I still envy my daughter’s hair.
Thank you, Tina, for hosting this week’s Challenge. May you find graceful, natural curves all around!
Some lovely curves there Priscilla. As a curly-haired person I always envied straight (green grass-other side right?). Now that I’m older it’s all about easy. And curly is just fine by me😊
I was too young in the 60s when straight, fine hair was ‘in’. Farrah Fawcett & Big Hair 80s pushed me ‘out’. Older than 50 ‘easy’ is no problem: I wear a long, straight ponytail. I have returned to acceptance. 🙂
I love your daughter’s hair too! Congratulations on embracing the curved lines in life! I admire your flexibility.
Thank you – I do need to keep practicing to avoid stiffening up. 😉
Beautiful examples of curves, Scilla!
Curves are delightful especially your daughter’s hair that I want to place my hand on it.
Soft and wavy feels really nice to touch, that’s for sure.
Beautiful examples and musing. ❤ I also always rejoice when the rain, humidity or swimming in the sea makes my hair just this much curvier. No hairdresser has ever managed the same.
Thank you. ❤ Winter and static cling do just the opposite of that wonder of humidity. I slick my very long hair into a bun and pretend I've been wearing a knit hat all day…even if I haven't. My flat hair just looks like that.
