In order to observe beauty, each time he had to put on his ugly pair of spectacles.
Michael Augustin, Beauty
All in all, the owner of that ugly pair of spectacles had it right: beauty can be evoked in so many ways, with some of them being so far from beautiful. Frankie (2007) is a short film directed by Irish filmmaker Darren Thornton, and I hope you’ll love it as much as I did.
It says in one of the books that it’s important to spend time looking into the child’s eyes. It’s called mirroring. You need to let the child look into your eyes, and then when he smiles you smile back. They get some sort of comfort from it. It’s to make them understand that they are normal.
