space and density
It struck me as a new and more aware approach to my physical presence. There was no measuring against thinness or delicacy as a feminine ideal. It was, rather, a meditation on human muscle and bones working in concert. About a spine axis and skeletal support that were a perfect if improbably assymetrical frame asking for muscles to guide it in healthy, graceful movement- for a heated alchemy to sculpt suppleness and power from a body that is too unfocused.
I want to find my center of gravity and worship it.
Can't find photographer credit. The site I stole it from stole it from somewhere else. It's a Botero sculpture. Photoshopping by me.
