The Enemies of Beauty. Guest Post by Simone Foedrowitz

„Wo und was ist Schönheit?“ möchte Liz regelmäßig auf ihrem inspirierenden Blog Exploring Colour New Zealand wissen. Und? Was würdet ihr spontan sagen?

Hier nun meine sehr persönlichen Gedanken im Reblog „The enemies of beauty“.

“Where and what is beauty?” Liz regularly wants to know on her inspiring Blog Exploring Color New Zealand. And? What would you say spontaneously?

In the end I lost all
even my tears.

What is beauty?
