with age comes respect and generosity

Florescent yellow bralette. Mastectomy. Love and acceptance.

I’ve met a woman who is comfortable with her body; showing and sharing all its wrinkled lopsidedness.

What made her nudity different than the unclothed women at the spa or the gym? I’m not sure. Maybe that there was a story to go with it. A story about being an overworked chef with children who missed her. Eating “meals” of sauce samplings over the trash can, getting breast cancer and looking forward to the “vacation,”  having a nipple made from her  thigh…

The “vacation.”

I learned the moral of that story real fast.
