"The active practice of loving myself exactly as I am is radical self love. It is loving all 311 pounds of my glorious body out loud in public. It is engaging, challenging and dismantling the story that I am lacking desirability because of the size of my body. Doing this work in community with people who not only helped create that belief, but with the people who have spent years loving me as my most powerful self, feels revolutionary. My hope is that this project serves as an invitation for everyone to investigate their perceptions of beauty, in themselves and others. Most importantly, spending two hours a day for 30 days invested In seeing the parts of my body that have been made invisible and shamed as actually beautiful has made it possible for me to see others in full visibility and love. I am whole, perfect, and complete exactly as I am and exactly as I am not which is to say: I am absolutely beautiful and so are you."

"Truth walks toward us on the paths of our questions…as soon as you think you have the answer, you have closed the path and may miss vital new information. Wait awhile in the stillness, and do not rush to conclusions, no matter how uncomfortable the unknowing."

"Dominant systems maintain and reproduce themselves because the dominant group is rarely challenged to think of its dominance. One of the characteristics of power and privilege is the ability to go unexamined…lacking introspection, and in fact, being rendered invisible in the discourse about issues that are primarily about them. […] men are erased from the conversation […] even how our language is structured conspires to keep our attention off men."

- Jackson Katz in his TEDTalk

Frosty sunset by Vladimir Melnikov
Enjoyed today’s blustery snow day. Had more of these when I was younger and I miss it. Wish Old Man Winter threw a temper tantrum more often; today was in retaliation to our groundhog’s defiant prediction of Spring’s imminent arrival.

I am…and I am not. Parts of it are being lived, but there is still much to be done to complete it. I never want to complete it. I want to keep dreaming, then chasing and catching them.
