My most recent revision is so curious to me. On the one hand, I feel so much more comfortable in my skin with my flat chest than ever before. On the other hand, it is still a significant change. Each time I venture out, I do, for a moment, question if people notice. Obviously those who know me well or have seen this project comment and ease the curiousity around recognition. I am finding myself wondering though, in the same way we do with any subtle (or overt) change in our outward appearance, if everyone else notes the difference. When I am paying at the coffee shop or the grocery store I always frequent, is it on the other’s mind too? I am contemplating more from a place of excitement than embarrassment. I was far more troubled by my new zit than my lack of tit when I went to the coffee shop for a meeting yesterday. Perhaps my ease with this transformation makes re-entry into the world no big deal.
