Thomas Henry Huxley


Thomas Henry Huxley
has ceased to be
but across the dark divide of death and time
just made me think of something
which may be important for me
So thank you kindly
Thomas Henry, CTB

  1. Someone should've told him to cut the whiskers off though.

  2. Ah they are a fine pair of whiskers on a fine man!

  3. I ponder what would go through a man's head as he looked in the mirror and carefully shaved his upper lip and chin, then looked at those whiskers and thought, 'Yep - they are mighty fine.' Not that I know what the man thought as he viewed his whiskers, of course. Perhaps he thought, 'I'll leave them on just to remind me how ridiculous everything is, really.' ... But no. I suspect he thought they were mighty fine. Not that this issue has anything to do with anything, really.

  4. It is the mind and thoughts rather than the whiskers that are important.

  5. True, but what do the whiskers reveal about the mind?

  6. I have no idea, because they are most unusual and unexpected whiskers...

  7. You don't think I should grow a pair of these then Claude?

    I'm sure you'd enjoy the photo :)

  8. You could try. One never knows.

    This gentleman also has thick abundant hair on his head. I don't think this style of sideburns would go fit a Yul Brynner type.
