How have I never come across the Prost Questionaire? Very cool.

So, I came up with a phrase for you-- unearth beauty. NOt beauty in the commerical sense but beauty in the confident, true, pure, honest, aware, self-embraced sense. Whether you are truth seeking or putting a look together, you are unearthing the beauty available at any moment. Just a thought.
