FOCUS: four

Sophia Loren in her later years. Fine as well as sophisticated with a freer sense of being a Lady. ~ Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 

Shohreh Aghdashloo's deep compelling beauty.

Eartha Kitt spoke her negative views on the war in Vietnam at a White House luncheon, she was effectively blacklisted and didn't work in the States for fully a decade.

The thought that, nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful, is a wonderful compliment. But, there is perception. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; yes? Well, perception of concepts changes belief systems, as well as altering the way a man looks at a woman, and the way a man looks into a woman gathers different fragments of what is the whole, or can become whole! These musings are in themselves alternative looks into the illusion of sound, of movement, of being and the how of changing from within to see within! This magic is the wonder of being flesh and blood, spirit and intelligence. - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 4/5/18

"Sophia Loren's breasts were always there in a way that drew the eye to them, but restrained the mouth from comment. Only a lady could do that and a lady could not, or would not explain it to a man." - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 

Sophistication of Sophia Loren

The way sophistication was depicted by certain women was part of the mystique women carried in the 20thCentury. It is hard to fathom, this essence, in a climate of judgment fearful of collective contradictions around one product: tobacco. Tobacco, cotton, human trafficking were three streams of wealth at the core of the United States. Their place in history is a story of how the colonists took sacred things and corrupted them for their benefit. The least an American citizen can do is get off their high horses and explore their roots intelligently. There is a stream that flows into the rivers that feed the oceans. . . - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 4/5/18

Smoking outdoors. Sophia Loren.
