Batting a Thousand:
The Words that inspired it:



Life is described in one of four ways:
a journey,


a battle,


a pilgrimage,


or a race.
Select your own metaphors,
but the necessity of finishing is all the same.
For if life is a journey, it must be completed.
If life is a battle, it must be finished.
If life is a pilgrimage, it must be concluded.
And if life is a race, it must be won.

The Fairy World Series has been an exploration of my unique brand of Woman. Growing up, I experienced the extremes of the 1970's stereotypical behavior: both of the genders were represented clearly to my little-grrrl self. I learned to fight, to fear the adults of the world, and to loath my biggest birth defect, being born female. I wanted to play war, and I fought regularly, boys mostly.




I hated the color pink, which was spoon-fed in every petite little girl bite I took. In long hair and dresses, I went about my life trying to make sense of what it was to be a girl in this world. Seeking balance, seeking my inner truth, coming to grips with the body that was at once, object/commodity, weapon/tool, and all the time weak/powerful, and shameful/virtuous.




Learning how to play the roles with gusto, I have traveled 38 years in a body that has not always felt like my own; a rental that is a little short in the legs and itchy in all the spots that are just out of reach.




Fairy World allowed me to marry the warrior, and the type, or brand, of woman that I am. I love my grrrl-ness now, a beautiful, complex and scary uniqueness that defies definitions and allows ultimate flexibility. The female form is inherently preprogrammed into us to bring forth many emotions from every human being on the planet. I am one such human, and this is what I see/feel about also being classified as Female Human.




My fairies are not average beauties; they represent the different aspects of my new breed of human being; complex beings.


We are all creator and destroyer, we all also have a terminal illness; it's called birth. I am proud to be this complicated being commonly known as Woman, privately known as my tiny, infinite universe. This life is full of potential, pain and change.


Choice is like mathematical equations;


never ending numbers spiraling into the void,


life is choice; choose wisely and often.


Welcome to my world.


Fairy World.
