The Quotes that inspired the work:
“My facts shall be falsehoods to the common sense. I would so state facts that they shall be significant, shall be myths or mythologic. Facts which the mind perceived,thoughts which the body thought - with these I deal.”

~Henry David Thoreau

***

“The first thing that strikes the careless observer is that women are unlike men, they are ‘the opposite sex’ (though why ‘opposite’ I do not know; what is the neighboring sex’?). But the fundamental thing is that women are more like men than anything else in the world.”

~Dorothy Sayers

***

“Let us not hesitate to be the messiahs of our age.”

~Lucretia Mott

I am a Woman. I am a Human. I am More than a Gender. I am simply just More. We are all at the epoch of non-gender thinking. We are Human, and we could all be so much more. To find the truth of ourselves, sometimes you must go inside to find your way out. I love Drag Queens, I always have, they are some of the bravest and most loving people I have ever known. Strong, beautiful and talented these humans have always been powerful hero personalities for me. I honor them in this work. Besides, they will take off a shoe and beat you to death with it, in a heartbeat. They are warriors of the light. So, watch yourself. :)
The text at her elbow reads:

“Nuer warrior in ceremonial costume: the Nuer believe in an omnipotent God who is responsible for good fortune and for bad, who is in the sky but is also on earth with man. Man is God’s opposite, the created as against the creator, but his ‘breath’ or ‘life’ comes from God and returns to God again after death.”

I hope your day is full of Wonder and Joy, thanks for being here today.
On a side note, my two best girlfriends in this world are celebrating their birthdays yesterday and today. Stop by and tell them happy birthday won’t you, I’d love to see them both over run with well wishes. Tell them Heather sent you. *Big Grins*

Heather
