love this body (self-portrait with pink hair)

self-portrait with pink hairSometimes I forget. I think everyone forgets to love their body, but it’s the thing that connects us with the world, with other people, and food and weather and light.

Dancing reminds me what I am capable of– how strong and beautiful I am and what I can handle. I forget the strong part especially, and lately. When my sister took me rock climbing for the first time a few years ago, I was up there on the rock and scared and didn’t think I could reach the next foot hold. Phoebe said, “Use those dancer legs.” Amazingly, my leg was long enough and I pulled myself further up.

We’re all stronger than we think.

  1. Anna,

    I’m reading my emails for the first time in a week. I’m trying not to spend too much time in the basement because I don’t know the mold situation yet and it’s pretty depressing down here. I know things in my house will eventually get figured out. I wanted to print this post but my print preview basically just shows the title but the content is empty. Is there a way to print this??

    Judy
