Timing

This photo was part of a shoot by Nicola Wilson last week. Nicola was kind enough to allow a close friend of mine to exercise her cosmetic art muscle and I think I may be even more excited than she is with the finished product.

She e-mailed the photo to my attention this morning, literally moments after I read the following quote by Robert Greene, describing the symbol of Cupid's arrow:

"What awakens desire in the seduced is not a soft touch or a pleasant sensation; it is a wound. The arrow creates a pain, an ache, a need for relief. Before desire there must be pain. Aim the arrow at the victim's weakest spot, creating a wound that you can open and reopen."
