Here is the "mariposa" (butterflywoman) that Luis Paniagua sculpted and I collaged, painted and constructed the rest of the piece. I feel as though she is announcing
the end of a long period of inner turmoil. My heart is open and I stand naked and free,
ready to take flight. Learning to love life in all it's "anxious beauty". I still have unresolved questions in my heart perhaps I always will, it is the questions themselves that I am learning to love.
I am learning to love.
To love myself and others
in all their struggles
to be human.
