The Body on the Edge of Womanhood and Queerness – Unruly Bodies – Medium
This is the arc of loving yourself: not a lightning bolt or a movie romance, not swelling strings or bursting fireworks, but the incremental and incomplete progress of a melting glacier, shaping the land where it once lay. Over time, I have learned to accept love in small measures. I have learned to ask for better. Some days, I am able to see the wilds of my body as you saw them: worthy of loving exploration. You pulled me beyond the narrow imagination of so nice you found someone, the damning and faint praise of friends and family for the table scraps I was meant to savor.
