Baroque Neck

P1015938 (FILEminimizer)

Alexander did have a crooked neck. Louis XIV did not. But when you see a teenage girl smile for a photograph, tilting her head slightly to the right or to the left, consider this as a reference to the past centuries and the eternal quest for power and beauty. Trying that in front of the mirror, I must have pinched a nerve. I can’t turn my head either way now. I don’t even look when people are caling me, and they’ve been saying things behind my back, thinking I had lost my hearing.
