Nora, how about...

non-narcissus--
my daughter oblivious
of her own beauty


But then again if she looks at all like you how could she be oblivious?

I think its a good thing, Nora for she would appreciate the beauty of others...and thats a quality less seen in today's children...

atleast here in India - so self centered children..
and pampering parents give them a feeling that they are the only angels on earth!

I feel pity!

wishes,
devika

Marty, I'm glad you got the connection with the myth. I'm contrasting the two. She's way more beautiful inside and out.

Devika, thanks. I think one aspect of beauty is a lack of awareness. It's not as if she thinks she's ugly, just natural.

Oh yes, Nora... I meant only that.:)

May her naturalness remain in her :)
