Skin Gives it Away [Comic]

“Why is it that the mere recollection of a shameful moment can cause you to blush? Distanced years, an incident from childhood returns with intensity, and one relives that horrible feeling. As Kim Scott writes, “Bury memory deep in shame.” Equally, the shame buried in memory seems to erupt, having lost none of its sharp pain. And you blush, the only feeling that physically covers the face. In French, one blushes the whites of the eyes, to the ears, and to the roots of one’s hair. The tentacles of the blush, of blood rushing to the face, attest to the inner cringe.”

— Elspeth Probyn, Blush: Faces of Shame, p. 2.
