I have to confess: when Blow Me A Kiss by Alice Harris arrived, feelings of apprehension and intrigue washed over me. On one hand, beautiful photography and coffee table books are a personal weakness. But, there’s a side of me that most people don’t know about…I can’t bear to look at the mouths of most strangers. Whether they are speaking, singing or (heaven help us) chewing, the mouth is usually something I avoid looking at like the plague. Even though the cover alone kept me in a trance and made me rethink my stance on my aversion, I still put off even taking a cursory flip through the pages until several days later.
There’s still a ways for me to go before I’ll be able to watch the contortions of the mouth mid-aria or not be repelled by abused lips that dearly need Carmex but I can now appreciate the mouth so much more. I might even try a rose-colored lip tint tomorrow and see where it takes me!
