A Finely Shaped Head

When I think of my wife, I always think of her head. The shape of it, to begin with. The very first time I saw her, it was the back of the head I saw, and there was something lovely about it, the angles of it. Like a shiny, hard corn kernel or a riverbed fossil. She had what the Victorians would call a finely shaped head. You could imagine the skull quite easily. ~ Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

  1. Unfortunately, after a few pages, this quote becomes much less beautiful. A foreshadowing of evil.

    Thanks for your comment about the blog. I saw another stunning blog and just had to steal it. You’ll never guess which one. But I’ll never come up to the standard of the photos there.
