A lover once told me my body looked like raw tofu.
What an analogy.
What a thing to say.
What a thing to hear.
Who knew tofu could be so fucking powerful?
I am grateful for my body,
For my skin, my bones, my muscles, my fat, my hair, my nerves,
For dealing with all the shit I've put it through,
For the things it allows me to do,
For the privilege it gives me,
And the vulnerability it gives me too.
I will not apologise for my body anymore,
I will not allow others a say in it, or a right to it.
I am grateful for the feminine forces that flow through me,
And through this world,
In different brilliant forms,
In my friends, my family, my lovers,
In all their different brilliant forms.
I am grateful,
That we might heal,
From the toxicity that also flows through this world that we are born into so vulnerable,
And realise through love
And respect for each other,
How powerful we are,
In our bodies, our hearts, our minds,
Despite all the shit we put ourselves through, and because of it,
And because of our vulnerabilities,
And because we are truly, deeply capable of embracing our differences,
We are powerful.

and Bloke the cat for not giving a shit when I'm naked in the garden ❤
This is a drawing that combine acrylic paint and collage. This piece really express who I am. The eyes exaggerate that I want to see more things, the fire come out of mouth is showing the energetic of me. The heart is blooming because I am the person that have empathy.
This painting completely shows my mood at the time of creating works. When I have no idea, my brain and my nervous system are in a state of decadence, so I eat a lot of food to relieve the pressure. I add the knife to show the severely disturbed.
Me in my element. Frozen nose, chilly fingers, surrounded by ice and cold. Life cant get better.
Thanks @parkerhoen for seeing my vision and helping me with the shot. We had to stack coats and camera bags to keep shadows off my face, and make tons of little adjustments here and there to get just the right photograph.
