There is no exquisite beauty… without some strangeness in the proportion.
Edgar Allan Poe
Leading up to Halloween, we’ve got ourselves some Edgar Allan Poe.
(And yes, I ran this sentence through the grammar check and it found nothing wrong with it. Sir Adgar Allan Poe might have been scared.)
With ongoing discussions about self-image and, lately, self-optimization, this old line seems strangely fitting. Let’s la la la into a new week. Make it productive (and, if you must, spooky).

Mr Poe is correct! 🙂
He he, thanks. I’ve got one for next week as well 🙂
Our face has two sides, a left and a right one. Only if you cover one up, or put a line through a photography of a face, you can see how off some proportions are.
True. Maybe that’s where two-faced comes from?
Two-faces comes from the legend of the Roman god Janus, who had two faces, one at the front of his head and another at the back. It was assumed that a person who would say one thing to one person and a conflicting thing to another would have two faces, like Janus.
Oh thank you, I wasn’t aware of that. Altough it rings a bell with Arachne?!? I’ll look into this!
