this is my truth



 The Beauty of Different

"I don’t wear a bra, make-up or proper shoes with dresses. I no longer shave anything, eat meat, own a TV or read newspapers. My teeth are crooked, not white. My skin is dry and sun damaged. My butt is dimply and my tummy curvy. I am skinny, hyper and fidgety. I talk loud, cuss like a sailor and drink red wine. I am beautiful, different and bold. Naturist, spontaneous, curious, wild and free. She is me, I love me." Deb Taylor  { and I refuse to Photoshop edit away my wrinkly neck }
I am becoming the woman I've wanted, grey at the temples, 
soft body, delighted, cracked up by life with a laugh 
that's known bitter but, past it, got better, 
knows she's a survivor...that whatever comes, 
she can outlast it. 
I am becoming a deep weathered basket
Jayne Relaford Brown



as I continue to weather, age and get a bit rusty and crusty...
will you join me at She is Three where I continue 
to peel away and expose the layers of my truth 
as I  step into my whole being !
