There are no words.
So much has been felt this summer about so much including “loving yourself.” This includes loving yourself as a “brown girl,” as artist-performer-dancer Okwui Okpokwasili shares in her amazing one-woman show “Bronx Gothic,” also the subject of a documentary.
And loving yourself as a woman who sets boundaries as did painter Georgia O’Keefe, the subject of an exhibit at Brooklyn Museum.
I am grateful for the lessons in progress that gesture toward the things that bring us both together and keep us apart.
The idea of the gaze on certain bodies and the ability of those same bodies to look out and assess is still on my mind.
So much to take in.
All this while being grateful for so many heroes who inspire again and again.
