Definitely not the Hollywood ideal, but then even the women who model for such pictures are Photoshop’d. Kyla is a very shapely woman who knows how to dress well. Any women can look great in the right clothes, no matter her girth. This cat likes curvy, Rubenesque women, and Kyla is a great example of such a figure.
Shooting Margitte’s photo for the blog made me think a lot about the mundane times I do not see my body. So, I placed a full length mirror in the hallway, right outside my bathroom door. Now, I get to see myself brush my hair, floss my teeth, go tinkle (if you could pee with the door open you would, too — don’t hate !), ready my shower…
It’s been weird. But it’s been helpful. Even today, I’ll catch a glance and be overwhelmed by a feeling of unfamiliarity.
We all have a few slip-ups, but the relationship I have formed with this view of my body is one that I wouldn’t give up for the world. It’s beautiful.
Thank you to everyone who has been, and continues to be, a part of this powerful, important project.
