I appreciate you, my readers, so much! And I hope you’ll give this new, radical and edgy piece a chance.
In this piece I examine and interpret how this art challenges the patriarchal nature (that even seeps into faith)… and I help us consider what empowering ideas might emerge if we dare to imagine.
As you read, you’ll see me say things like the quote below:
“I view this piece and know I can gather the hurting world in my womb. I can allow my feminine-specific suffering under patriarchy to be the conduit for my passionate pursuit of justice and my spark of love I extend toward others. For truly, I am the arms stretched out inside the fallopian tubes. The darkest night of my soul under patriarchy can become the very hope for others to find light.”
