When I look in the mirror I see a lot of flaws but the most upsetting is how much shorter my legs appear to be getting. In fact, when I look around it appears everyone has unnaturally short legs.
How can this be? Are my legs shrinking with age? Perhaps…..What about everyone else? No! Something is amiss.
After further reflection (and emotional turmoil) I discovered that my brain has become so accustomed to the elongated limbs in magazines that human beings now seem out of proportion.
I did not grow up with photo-shopped images yet they have infiltrated my perception of human proportion. How bad will it be for this generation?
I shudder to think.
