I wonder at times how my strength coexists with my desires, how my inner "superhero" walks with my vulnerable humanity and how my determination and vision live with my longing. How do I uphold the complex nature of who I am without one part dominating or another overwhelming or diminishing? Can I love myself wholly, as I do, and simultaneously desire to be loved by another? Can I be strong and brave and still long to be held? Can I feel more integrated than ever and still wonder through what lens others see this body, this being--in tact or broken? Layered desires and determinations live beneath this scarred chest and pulse through me at once. I am a dynamic being with otherworldly vision and human desires. As dialogued with @mumumansion and @lisafield12 yesterday, our healing lies within owning all aspects of self and experience and through the sharing. By naming the parts, I am more whole even in the places I sometimes long for more. {This image is part of the EXPLANT collection being shown in conjunction with @_notestoafriend at @site57gallery from 10/7 to 10/31.}
