MIND: Femininity

Fifty years ago I was born a female human animal. This, I was told, meant that I was a “Woman.” But I never knew what they meant.

Am I that which I observe or that which observes me?

What is a Woman? // Leonora Carrington

MIND: Fluid

I have never been able to understand people with consistent lives – people who, for example, grow up in a liberal Catholic household and stay that way; or who in junior high school are already laying down a record on which to run for president one day. Imagine having no discarded personalities, no vestigial selves, no visible ruptures with yourself, no gulf of self-forgetfulness, nothing that requires explanation, no alien version of yourself that requires humor and accommodation. What kind of life is that?
