Voice

Once again I have been a very well behaved slut again. I am going to have to start misbehaving soon or I’m going to run out of slutty photos. Life keeps interfering however…

I have been spending a lot of time on my back though. Laying in bed on a heating pad nursing a painful shoulder, I just breathe thru the pain. Muscle relaxers and weed help as well.

I stare at the wall above my bed. Three separate pieces of art hang there. The grouping of them says so much more to me now.

The first is one I asked to move into my room from Sir’s shop. I love it. It always reminded me humility is a sign of strength.

YOU
are not that important
(created by an artist friend of Sir’s)

The second is a goofy Christmas sign the neighbors gave us. I thought it would be funny hanging behind the St. Andrews cross. It’s not as funny now.

BETTER WATCH OUT
BETTER NOT CRY
NO POUTING EITHER
(a novelty holiday sign received as a gift)

The third has always left me with unsettled feelings. The mask is titled “♀”. The young girl that made it said she felt unable or not allowed to speak her mind. I have always encouraged just that, but at that age I hadn’t found my ‘voice’ yet either. Fortunately, she has found her inner strength many years sooner than her mother did.

When I put the three together and stood back to look at the placement, a completely new meaning emerged for me. I almost took it right back down. Different feelings overwhelmed me. Instead of humble, humored, and proud I felt scared, angry, and helpless.

*This* is how I feel about the current political state of the world.

I need to find my ‘voice’ again…
