Smooth skin.i heard it a number of times . ‘ you are a woman, appear smooth’ . Being a person who lives in simplicity. I wasn’t smooth skin.
Cultivate smooth manners. Be obedient.well mannered. Polite.nice.clever talker.tried, but couldn’t fit in.
Smoothness was contradictory.humans are coarse inside, slippery outside.there is little beauty seen .when we crave to become.we belittle, the poor and worship the greedy.we appear perfect.to hide the rough edges inside.the sensations – pain, envy,irritation are covered beneath the smile.the words come out without any conviction .our relation with nature is stuttered.so, Thoreau went to the woods, to live deep and suck out the marrow out of life
Can we also live outside the constraints of societal niceties??
