~ Jamie Ridler
This week, Jamie was inspired by the Mary Oliver poem, Wild Geese, and particularly the line, “You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.” She explains further here: http://jamieridlerstudios.ca/the-vulnerability-of-desire, but today's question is one I try not to think about. She even explains why I feel this way:
It’s scary to share what we really want if we feel we’ll be judged. I’m worried that if I say I love chandeliers, fashion and going to the spa, you’ll think I’m a snob. You’ll lose trust in me, thinking I must not be as down-to-earth as you thought I was.And it's true. If I answer this question, people might think of me differently, but I am still ME. So...
The soft animal of my body wishes for mountains of soft cuddly bedding, frilly dresses and floofy skirts, hair that flows in thick curls to my waist, silky petticoats and camisoles, warm fluffy sweaters, hot cocoa with home-made marshmallows, warm sunshiny days with warm lakes to swim in and warm rocks to dry off on, ruffled panties and fluffy socks, cheese-drenched crunchies and mouthfuls of dark chocolate, flaky pastries and rainbow-sprinkled cupcakes.
