Women of Color: A Beautiful Rainbow of Splendor

They say a picture is worth one thousand words so I suppose this hub will be worth over 100,000 words. It is my goal to give you 100 beautiful women of color to fill this hub and I am sure that my trouble will be limiting myself to that number and avoiding the temptation to continue on after reaching my goal.But I will do my best to contain myself as 100,000 words is a lot to take in with just one sitting! LOL!

I believe that beauty can be found most anywhere but no more easily than in the faces, forms and natures of the women of the world. Not only is their physical beauty endless, but their natural tendencies toward kindness, compassion and nurturing bring forth beauty which, I must admit , few men seem capable of displaying.You can see the beauty of love in the eyes of a wife, the beauty of dedication in the eyes of a mother, and the beauty of strength in the eyes of grandmother.

I have found in my life that to be the person I want to be, I must strive to be more like my mother though it is my nature to be more like my father. Do not misunderstand -- my father is a very kind, considerate and caring man. But he does not often show his emotions and has trouble saying things that perhaps he feels should be understood without saying. He has told me he loves me maybe a dozen times in my life. My mother tells every time we speak on the phone. I know they love me equally, but my mother not only shows me her love but sings it to the world every chance she gets. And there is great beauty in the song she sings.

Please enjoy these photos, but remember as you do that there is more to beauty than the physical. And though these beautiful women my be famous and often known around the world, true beauty is most often sitting next to you, holding your hand, kissing your cheek, or tucking you into bed, in spirit if not in actuality. I will leave you with a quotation from my grandmother before we get to the photos I have for you -- "Find beauty in the world everyday and your world will always be beautiful."

"Darkness and light is a woman's fortune. It's our ability to cherish our salty tears and own that we are made of love and rage. It's our ability to dance between the polarity of a night of celbrated debauchery followed by a holy day of rest, tireless to turn our fury into fuel and expression and instead of lash and cut, inspire."

I liked what you said: "Not only is their physical beauty endless, but their natural tendencies toward kindness, compassion and nurturing bring forth beauty which, I must admit, few men seem capable of displaying"... not always true... I'd like to think they are capable of displaying it towards their dogs, cars, and parents. (Just joking).
