On her way to the afternoon practice.
I was invited to Camp Borsch at Burning Man where I obviously had some incredibly delicious borsch(or borscht to some folks) but I also got to meet some wonderful people, including this couple. We grabbed a few shots ( photos and vodka!!) and got to know each other with smiles and good food. Cheers!!!
A while back, I created this image with my dear friend who has battled breast cancer THREE times and won! She’s battled other cancers as well and to this day, lives the most amazing, happy, healthy life ever. She teaches all of us how to handle terrifying news, horrible setbacks and make decisions to LIVE, not just suffer through it all. She and I have talked about how mastectomy, radiation, chemo therapy and surgical procedures do affect your body image, sexuality, normal body functions and your self-worth. She’s faced it all and she continues to inspire me and share her love and gentleness with everyone around her.
All of that, or at least some of that, is what I hoped to capture in this composition. It’s titled “Radical Surgery”
I honor her (plus many more friends who’ve gone through this too) and all of those in this medical field who work so hard at finding a cure for this cruel disease. I also celebrate each and every person who has been affected by breast cancer and chosen LOVE and LIVE anyway!

No man….ever!…should be allowed to be THIS beautiful. Period. Look at him! Lean. Handsome. Happy. No pot belly. Sarong slung down way lower than should be allowed. Full head of hair in that styling’ head wrap. Teeth… eyes… skin… jewelry… PERFECT! That’s total bullshit! I bet he even smells like that vanilla-lavender soap from a spa. No man should EVER be allowed to be this beautiful!
But, I took a picture of him anyway. Bastard.
