Theme Thursday: Face

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that will be open from one Thursday to the next. Anyone can participate in it. The rules are simple:

  • A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
    Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”

This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.

The theme for this week is:

FACE , Features

Bronzino’s Venus, Cupid, Folly and Time


Moreland’s face in repose, in spite of this cherubic humorous character, was not without melancholy too; his flush suggesting none of its riotously healthy physique enjoyed by Bronzino’s — and, I suppose everyone else’s — Folly.

from Anthony Powell’s Casanova’s Chinese Restaurant, p. 16 part of A Dance to the Music of Time
