Scars and Stars

Nude female portrait painted in watercolor

"This year I made friends with my flesh suit. This year she became me.

I decorate this canvas with memories and milestones, with sisterly silliness and legend.

I wear these scars and stars with pride, they mark a hard life, well-lived, well-loved.

Like the phoenix I have risen and fallen, Like the eternal butterfly or ultimate alchemist goal, I transmute, transform in the fires of pain, of joy. The fires of my own making.

I am grateful."

ESPAÑOL:

"Este año hice amigos con mi atuendo corporeo. Este año ella se convirtió en mí.

Decoré este lienzo con memorias e hitos, con tontería fraternal y ficción.

Me visto con estas cicatrices y estrellas con orgullo, ellas son la marca de una vida dura, muy bien vivida y amada.

Como un fénix me he elevado y caído, Como una mariposa eterna o la meta final de un alquimista, me transmuto, me transformo en los fuegos de dolor y gozo. Los fuegos que yo misma he encendido.

Estoy agradecida."
