“For me, beauty is when I experience deep trust or compassion in another person. When I experience a person who allows themself to show passion as opposed to people who live a boring life, that is beauty to me. Another thing I would define as beauty is absolute honesty. For example, a secret that has been hidden for many years is finally told. The relief that it brings when the truth finally emerges is beautiful. That and French and Italian romantic movies from the 60’s and 70’s.”
