Collette Pretty and Plain

Collette puts on her pretty face for the world because she is a fragile being. While she has pretty eyes and many of them, and a charming flower decorating her hair, her smile is tight and strained. It is difficult to pretend to be the pretty one to hide what’s inside. The real Collette is content in being plain, with her raggedy heart full of promise and love, so open to wounding. Her single eye is not much to look at and her spare eyelashes don’t give it much definition but it’s single focus sees much in the world and takes it all in. Plain Collette has a rich inner life and a light that emanates from her the belies description….Collette is learning to meld the two parts of herself and be the authentic woman she is in the world.

    Saw this on your FB page….and I’m still smiling at the stories you create Corrine. ‘Her smile is tight and strained’ made me giggle (I once knew someone like that 😉 )

    Colette is beautiful in every aspect. I nearly cried when I read her story. Stunningly beautiful visual and written pieces.
