It seems I keep reading about the idea that in midlife, women pick up where they left off after puberty begins. After puberty, they often stop living for themselves and start thinking more about others. Then, after they’ve lived the life of wife and mother, they go back to wanting to live for themselves. Of course this is a generalization and some of us have never done the wife or mother thing and yet still find ourselves in mid-life wanted something else for ourselves.
It’s not finished yet, but I made this piece for someone who asked for a streaming wall hanging dealing with this subject, I could have made it for myself. I guess it’s been inside me for a while.
The words are : “Kiss myself awake I’m tired of sleeping, Answer the call of the Full Moon, Standing on the house of my heart, I Am Myself Again.”
