Plans for the long weekend:)

Dougal and I have lots - most of it involves working on assignments in the study but I do have a couple of social events to look forward to as well.  One of the books I am currently working on for a close reading assignment is The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison.  Great read:)  The book is about racial beauty and how beauty is defined, and what the impact can be on a person's psche if they are either deemed or think themselves ugly.  This book was written in the seventies and the myth of beauty is still causing havoc in society where people, both male and female, want to be thin, tanned, and accepted because they are beautiful.  Now there is nothing wrong with wanting to improve one's self, but to connect such action with being loved and accepted, or acceptable, that is not so good.  One's value as a human being should not be connected with skin colour, weight, or background.

Have a great day!
