I am a big ‘Little Me’.
I inhabit a large body,
a body of size, a body housing
a big Spirit and a minimal mind.
In my head I am a dancer, a diver,
an elegant, tall, thin Sally……
and then I giggle a smidging
at the very ‘notioned’ thought……
I laugh at myself as I pirouette
around and about, in and out
of all parts of me……………
Yet then I see this ageing self
in the glass upon the wall ….
a self where the years have
garnerd lines, rolls, width and curves
and I wonder:
“do I truly believe this is really me?
Who is ‘Me’? Where does the ‘I’
in me reside?” and inwardly I
toss my aching shoulders skyward!
All I know is this: my belief doesn’t
KNOW what I know about me……
skinny, vulnerable ‘Little Me’.
I’m taking the liberty today of sharing something which means a lot to me. It’s about the views of the great and wonderful Leonard Nimoy, on size. He appreciated women of all shapes and sizes and made a study and a point of photographing many women of size……
This link will hopefully take you to the Militant Baker Website where there is the most wonderful article not to be missed, if you are remotely interesed in matters of Size and Beauty. Thanks for taking a look
I read a cheerful Facebook post just now:
share the light
be the light”.
I sat feeling full, so full and joyFul(l) too….
I attempt to travel Light
I hope I live Light
I certainly desire to share Light
I believe I AM Light in many parts….
and some people need to be heavy too
as being Light sends us off the planet…..
here I go…..
Catch my feet willya?!
