I just finished reading "Egypt´s Sun King, Amenophis III" by J. Fletcher which was an interesting book about Egyptian History. Then I got interested in reading about Neferiti, or Nefertiti or Nofretete. Just wondering why this queen of Egypt has so many different names.
Reading the next lines I just had to laugh-

Beauty of the Nile may have had facelift from skilled artist"

Well, every human being is growing older. And many people like to use this quote `noone wants to get older but dying young isn´t a good alternative`. In today´s society a good look often is more important than `inner values´- we could start a new discussion on this topic. About the importance of beauty surgeries, the importance of being human, the importance of growing old gracefully,....
In Nefertiti´s times using photoshop was off the cards. But creating an illusion of reality is and was a topic nowadays as well as in the past days. Why do some people prefer the illusion of reality instead living the real life? Do we all need that illusion?
Ok, I must confess that I love illusion, too. Because I love reading and writing. And that´s mostly about creating illusion as well.
Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter. ~Mark Twain
I love that quote, so true!
