Because you can't have depths without surfaces.

Thought for the day



Think of dress in every light
'Tis woman's chiefest duty:
Neglecting that, ourselves we slight
And undervalue beauty.
That allures the lover's eye,
And graces every action;
Besides, when not a creature's by,
'Tis inward satisfaction.
John Gay 1685-1732

I am sure you know "A sweet disorder in the dress.." and "Whenas in silks my Julia goes..." - Robert Herrick is your poet for fashion. Not bad for a country vicar.

Yes, indeed and they will be coming up.
