    Vocabulary: your head

    A HEAD is, of course, a fundamental part of a body... It's normally what is first seen of an individual and what identifies individuals... Inside the skull is the brain which reacts to the outside world...(and to our inner world too!) Thanks to our brains sensations and emotions are expressed on our faces... A head can be hard ( a hard head), and it can be lost easily  (to lose your head/ to lose your mind). Many expressions mention this essential  part of our anatomy.
