Yahoo, that's awesome! (what the hell is it?)
Well, I'm not sure how literal your question is, so I'll try to cover both bases:What it is: Drawing (by old friend Olivia) of a girl kneeling, holding out a heart w/ wings.What it means: I've held on to this little illustration for about 5 years with this purpose in mind. It used to just be a picture that I liked, but in recent years it has acquired some significance. Basically, at this point in my life I feel more myself than I have ever felt before. And this girl, to me, represents the vulnerability that comes with moving toward my authentic self. For instance, with my family, it can be both nerve-racking and freeing to show them who I am today (let's say, by inviting them to a baptism at my liberal church). When I do things like that, I'm opening myself up to a barage of criticism from them, but making myself vulnerable in that way always leads to my feeling more at ease around them. It's about being comfortable in my own skin, I guess, which I am more and more these days. Let me also say that this process is made infinitely easier by the support I have from my amazing partner.Finally, I just wanted to note that we will be at church tomorrow. 10:30. At Wellington. We'll be there.
