I made this today, it means a lot to me. I took these photos of my best friend at the peak of her struggle with anorexia, she weighed around 105 lbs at 5’8. She was so weak that she had to constantly nap, and the only thing she regularly put in her body was tea with honey and milk. A couple days ago it was her 18th birthday, and she’s made a full recovery. I’m so proud of her and she reminds me every day that we can overcome our obstacles and be okay.
Looks like some old photography from the old years…

HIS FACE WAS PERFECTLY STRUCTURED TO CLASSICAL PROPORTIONS, FOREHEAD TO NOSE AND NOSE TO CHIN MEASUREMENTS BEING EQUAL-WITH HIGH ,WIDE CHEEKBONES PULLED TIGHTLY DOWN INTO MISCHIEVOUSLY CHISELED CHIN HIS SKIN WAS CREAMY SMOOTH
HIS BEARD VERY LIGHT ,HIS HAIR ASH BLOND LIKE MINE BORDERED HIS FACE IN A HALO OF SOFT LITTLE CURLS AND HIS EYEBROWS AS FINELY BLOND AS HIS HAIR,ARCHED GRACEFULLY TO FRAME THAT ONE DIVINE ASSYMMETRY ONE GREEN EYE AND ONE BLUE…EROTIC AND COMPELLINGDAVID STANDS FIVE FOOT TEN AND FIVE FOOT ELEVEN.HIS SHOULDERS ARE BROAD LIKE MINE AND ALTHOUGH HE’S ALWAYS BEEN SLENDER THE SINEW AND MUSCLE IN HIS ARMS AND LEGS FORETOLD THE POWERHOUSE I WOULD FIND IN HIS CHEST AND PELVIS
HIS FINGERS WERE LONG AND ARTISTICS WITH STRONG SQUARED OFF FINGERNAILS AND USUALLY THEY HELD A CIGARETTE
DAVID SPEAKS SOFTLY,AND THE TIMBRE OF HIS VOICE IS RICH AND INTELLIGENT IT’S AN ALMOST HYPNOTICALLY INSTRUMENT…HE HAS FULL,SENSUAL LIPS WHICH DEMAND KISSING,PERHAPS GENTLY,PERHAPS NOT.
