This is one in a series of animal and nature themed pieces I did. There is an order and chaos to nature that’s enchanting. We often forget as humans that we are part of nature, that we are inherently wild. We expect ourselves to conform to impossible standards of what we think of as control. We buff away our natural shimmer to produce a plastic veneer. And that’s ok if that’s what you want. There are so many options in life and it’s your choice. But no one should ever have to feel uncomfortable in their skin because they’ve been taught to believe it’s unnatural. It is so far from it.
It’s late now and I must sleep. There’s a big day tomorrow. Be safe in your journey for equality and justice. We must never stop fighting.
