late night thoughts on vanity

I realize that I use my body as an artistic medium.
Not just as a canvas to adorn…
but to sculpt and tint as well.

Is that vanity?
It is much like any tattoo enthusuast isn’t it? I see no problem with
seeing your body as an expression.

When I look in the mirror or set up my tripod, I am creating temporary art.

It is the fabric. It is the clothes. It is the sunglasses. It is the pose. And the hair.

It is also the body.

It is a strange kind of art, isn’t it? I’ve seen similar “art” on myspace celebrities. I suppose I should research others…Jeffrey Star, I believe is one.

Are we Deciples of Ziggy Stardust, perhaps?

But, Like Ziggy Stardust, I *hope* my expression only begins with the visual.

Ziggy Stardust rocks because the songs is awesome.
That Bowie used his body as further expression? awesome x2

Not that I compare myself to bowie…
Only that I consider him a teacher.

Thank you, Amy!!!


The wonderful thing…

is that in the last couple weeks, the “art” of mine that has recieved the most kudos EVER…

Is the ONLY one I always keep my clothes on for.

HugNation. 🙂

Besides, I think I’m learning how to be sexy with my clothes on. 😉

    you are sexy with or without clothes because of your soul and spirit. your infectious personality and laughter … your giving heart. you are surrounded by the most awesome family … what you have learned over the years through them .. shines in you.

    THAT is what is sexy about you.

    I hope I got your name right.

    The full explanation of how to truly see the body as beautiful and honor it the way it deserves in the way it was intended can be found at this site and the publications that come from it, called the theology of the body. I’m excited for you to learn of this great gem of knowledge and truth.

    Much peace and a big affectionate hug,
