Queerly Complex: Seeing My Selfie #1
My first post of the (Gregorian Calendar) New Year brings me back to my practice of self portraiture.
Happy (Gregorian Calendar) New Year. I started 2022 feeling confident & grounded. I took space & time to co-create with my self & with John. And we also cleaned up the house, made good food, and watched some shitty movies too. All in all the transition from 2021 to 2022 was delightful.
Then, Monday dawned, and with it came an impending dread. Like the whole damn world’s lost its mind, and the ones in charge just want us subjugated, trapped, and disconnected. And it was a feeling I couldn’t shake even while spending quality time with comrades like Crystal Mason of Queering Dream & Lisa Burger & Jericha Senyak with Dandelion Arts Finance Training Program & Megan Wilson with Clarion Alley Mural Project.
In between each of these meetings, I napped or stared at a wall.
So when I woke up Tuesday morning, I needed something both familiar & distant to help ground me a bit, to help me shift my perspective. I decided to return to self portraiture.
And if you’d like to see what I created & the conclusion to this post, you’ll have to go check it out at the new Queerly Complex Blog!
