While laboring over the way to describe a very specific, very meaningful tilt of the head, I turned to my friend, Professor Google, for insight. (You might know his alarmist cousin, Doctor Google....)

Anyhoo, he revealed this gem:

Hope it helps you, too!

I like this. Thank you, V.

And ... you have a new book coming out THIS FALL? Holy smokes. Are you going to share the cover, anything? Hmmm, Miss Carrots?

Oh, how I wish I could!! I've seen it (swoon!) and hope to be able to share it here before the October release.

Glad you liked the link. I know I should be showing and not telling but it's also nice to have just the right word to describe what I'm aiming to show, if that makes any sense.  :eh2

Just got home from another 12 hour day at work. I am anything but radiant. :)

Great list! Facial expressions are always tricky for me.

Thanks so much for sharing the link, Carrots. I bookmarked it in case I'm ever stumped about a facial expression in the future.

Thanks, I've bookmarked it, too. Those are good adjectives for more than facial expressions. It's nice to have a go-to list to job the mental log jams apart. :star2
