I look at the face in the mirror. It is a good face. Not an extremely handsome face, nor a powerful or striking face, but a fine, pleasant face. A good face. Nicely shaped nose. Lips full, but not overlarge. Proportions comfortably within the Golden Mean. The more I look at this face, the more i like it. It could use a few minor alterations to bring it closer to perfection, admittely; but overall i can't find too much to complain about. It's the sort of face you look at for a while and think, "Damn, that is a nice face, i wish i had one like it". And i do. I've only ever looked that way at individual parts of other people's faces, never at the entire face, and never with my own. But looking in the mirror at this one, i can't help but feel that this is how i want my face. The stitch-marks detract a bit; but since i had the take the parts individually from other faces less perfect, i can live with them. They're barely noticible. A good makeup job should cover them completely. Overall, i think i've done a damn good job making this face; and all my hard work has really paid off. The nose was the hardest part. Removing the nose without damaging it took some serious effort; went through 4 or 5 of them before i really got the technique down. Looking at this face i hold, i can say, without hesitation, it was worth all the time and trouble. Maybe one day i'll be able to get my face to look just like this, if i can ever save enough money for the surgery. But until then, i'll wear this one as long as i can; and make a new one when this wears out. I hope my next one is this good. Damn i like this face. hardrock -- Episkopos Hardrock Llewynyth GAC, AGSF(ret) firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.speakeasy.org/~hardrock/ My mind has become animated.
