SKiN ©2009: The Script, The Book & The Odyssey: The May 10, 2009 Segment

Chicago, IL USA:

Dermatologists must really have a hey-day as there are 439,000,000 Entries on Google for Skin alone as of Today's Date. This does not take into account any particulars, no defining adjectives, horrible, lesionary diseases or verb additions. Plain and simple, there is a lot to be said about Skin whether We are Professionals, Doctors or just Bearers and Wearers (of it)

However, it's sad to say that many of us take Skin for granted. I do myself (at times) because of getting caught up in other Activities. When I first began writing SKiN (The Script and Story), one of the first facts I enjoyed revisiting dealt with the Fact that Skin is the largest Organ We (as in Humans) have, although all Creatures do have a Skin of some variety. Personally, I never thought of it as an Organ, like ears, eyes or tongue. It may depend on how we are wired or hot wired.

Although I probably first ran into that Detail in grade school, Skin has mushroomed into a Billion Dollar Industry with each successive Generation finding out more and more about what can be done to enhance it and keep it young, rejuvenated and invigorated. If your Skin is dry, it can become normal. If your Skin is oily, it, too, can be remedied. Skin can even be bleached, as we have found out. Artificial Skin has even been produced for those who have suffered accidents.

After all, where would our Nerve Endings go, if not in our Skin and with every Dilemma 'out there to annoy or disturb us' that can get under our Skin and on our Nerves, there's no better place. Its function is similar to The Police by serving and protecting, you could say. And if I don't say so myself: Don't say it, wear it proudly, as the Pages of SKiN relay.
