I got my first tattoo twelve years ago in Asheville, NC. It's a short EE Cummings verse, my favorite poet for many years, and I suppose by default he still is. Here's an excerpt from a poem not inked on me but relevant for this moment:
spring is like a perhaps
Hand in a window (carefully to
and fro moving New and
Old things,while
people stare carefully
moving a perhaps
fraction of flower here placing
an inch of air there)and

without breaking anything.

This photo is five years old. I took it with my camera and tripod alone in one of my most sacred places to watch the sun set. I've lived many lives since this was taken. I've grown exponentially and still have the world left to learn. This letter I revisit often and to me represents a great sum of what it means to be a woman: "I see myself in my life each day differently . . . My life is not possible to tell. I change every day, change my patterns, my concepts, my interpretations. I am a series of moods and sensations. I play a thousand roles. My real self is unknown. My work is merely an essence of this vast and deep adventure. I create a myth and a legend, a lie, a fairy tale, a magical world, and one that collapses every day . . ." Anais Nin in a letter to the editor of Harper's Bazaar, 1946 #internationalwomensday #riseup #womenunite #gratitude 🌹

I'm convinced the most beneficial thing you can do for your well-being is to tell yourself every day, "I have so much." #love #WNC #gratitude #mindfulness #naturalwonders

Remember the time we went camping in the Gila Wilderness beside wild boars and tried to cook raw meat on a warm rock? We may not get it right all the time, but we do most of the time. Love you chip. 💕 @benitoplaza #valentines #everyday #newmexico
