Even though there is no way in hell, I would start smoking again, this image sure brings back the times when I really enjoyed sitting chatting over coffee & smoking . . .

This was popular in the 1920's. Dressing alike, and of course smoking was huge.

I smoked moderately for years but I always noticed a disappointment in the experience. I think grasping and lighting up is the best part.

They've found a silver dollar size part of the brain that when damaged, completely removes the desire for cigarettes.

What's interesting here is the androgynous style that was popular briefly. I can't imagine what would encourage the blending of the sexes. It was a time of liberation for women.

One interesting note; Uranus went into Aries in 1927.

Also interesting here is that the woman is taller, and the man is more feminine in dress, with more hair.

I noticed that. I thought they were a lesbian couple at first glance.

You're right joe!
And she looks like the protective one with her hand on his back. And yet her stance is traditionally feminine.

Obscuring or reversing the forms and language of the bodies. Interesting that approach to playing with or transgressing traditional boundaries and expectations. Utilitarian modes of dress can be androgynous, too, in a more neutral way.

absolutely. One thing is becoming the opposite. Interesting that in utilitarian modes it is moreso. Work to be done maybe and less time for leisure separations.
