Initially I thought about discussing aesthetics; specifically those relating to human beauty. You see, sometimes I am guilty of not noticing when someone has a new hair style or has lost a few pounds. I don’t believe I’m being ignorant but I notice people as a whole – not just their body and image but their soul.
For example, as a child I had a crush on a high school teacher. This teacher certainly didn’t fill the category of what most teenagers called attractive but his personality shone through. I saw the teacher holistically.
In TV programmes, I tend to admire, respect and am attracted to those characters who appear wise, kind, humorous and caring. My home-made pin-up calendar at work (don’t ask why!!) raised a few eyebrows. Not because of their body or good looks, entirely the opposite.
Perhaps this is why I enjoy holistic therapies. I look at the person as a whole; not just the physical but the spiritual and emotional.
Any guilty crushes you’d like to admit?
