On interactions 

Interacting with comments and messages has become one of my favorite things.

At first I wasn’t sure if that was ok, if I could allow myself to enjoy people responding to me showing myself as sexual.

The feelings that come up are mostly about shame and danger. The shame is bullshit, and I try to work through it as much as I can. The fear of danger I take the time to examine though, because that’s the smart thing to do. I don’t want to get hurt. But so often, underneath the perception of danger, there is also just shame.

Then there’s the question of it being morally questionable. But you know what, I don’t actually care where I stand on the moral scale. My only compass is how I feel. And interacting makes me feel alive.

Everyone’s perspective, everyone’s contribution becomes an opportunity to know what I think better, know what I like better, know what I believe in better, know who I am better.

Know thyself, right? This project has me feeling like the luckiest girl in the world.

  1. There are many thing some people will say one should never do say or enjoy. Most of it is BS. We only have a short time on this wonderful world and how we spend that time should always be our choice not someone else s. One day we turn around and find that we are old and have missed living our lives to the fullest. If things are not what you want out of your life take that first step and change it, one step at a time. The longest trip starts with the first step. But if you never take that step you will never know what may have happened and changed your life maybe for the better.

  2. I just came across your work and I think it is wonderful that you are finding a way of expression that means something to you. I too struggled with creative expression, until I found the balance right here on WordPress with my own blog. I love music, I love photography…yet for years I did not know how to strike a balance, or be able to do anything with them. Then I started writing, finding a connection, and its been a few years now of exploring that idea. Sometimes its happy, sometimes its sad recalling the loneliness of my youth, but its ultimately about finding the path of artistic expression.Your expression is no less beautiful. It may shock some, it might raise eyebrows from others, but it is you. You control it, you walk the path, you are in control. Keep going.
