October 18, 2004

another thought courtesy of a mate

Tom Shercliffe, the gentle giant of my kitchen, came up with this gem of an observation he made when one of our kitchen adoptees, Jake, arrived one night having straightened his hair. Artistic connoseurs will note that changing the frame around a work of art can have a dramatic effect on the appearance of the picture. As the jokes about Jake's femininity died down, Tom pointed out that changing your hair style or having it cut is like changing the frame of a picture: the masterpiece that is someone's facial features remains the same, but the way in which one's hair frames it can radically alter the effect that those features have. I think that that truism is something that will stick with me for the rest of my life. I'll never look at getting a new haircut the same way again.
