In this class there wasn’t any “Oh let’s not talk about that,” or “I’m uncomfortable talking about that,” or “I’m too ashamed to talk about that,” or “That’s private. Good girls don’t talk about that.” This class for me was an invitation…to appreciate and honor a different part of me.
For a while now I have beenso grateful for my body…how after so many years on the planet, it seems to function better than ever. And I do tell it so. I thank my feet and legs for having carried me so far on my journey. I thank my arms and my hands for all the things they do for me, not the least of which are the touches and hugs I give and receive. I thank my heart for beating and pulsing blood throughout my body…m lungs for breathing, my eyes for seeing, my ears for hearing…I could go on and on.
But did I ever thank my Vagina?
“Well why not?”! I wondered.. Just looking back on all the pleasures…yes making love…and yes birthing 2 of my favorite people. “Now THAT is a portal worth honoring,” I thought.
And so it is. Come see my “Planet Portal” at the Southern Shore Art Association show “Through the Gate” that opens Friday February 3 from 5 - 8 in at 724 North Franklin in Michigan City, Indiana.
Hope to see you there!
