From the 1985 movie Out of Africa. Robert Redford as Denys Finch-Hatton and Meryl Streep as Karen Blixen, better known by her pen name, Isak Dinesen. There is something incredibly sensual about this scene in which Finch-Hatton washes the hair of his lover, Karen. I can easily imagine the nimble fingers of Richard’s strong, elegant hands working the shampoo into her hair, then cupping the back of her head as he lifts the pitcher and pours the water to rinse her tresses.
(Finally eaten my first meal since Monday night. Toast and jam can be truly tasty.)
