Made ya look!!

I had a dream Leonard Nimoy was visiting my family and he was so delightful and chatting… he had longgggg black hair and was wearing a Mickey Mouse cap.. hehe I have a friend who LOVES him and has taken a couple pics with him, so I told him about her and he said. Oh does she wear all black, I said YES!!! He remembered her.. hehe And that was it.

So a friend pointed out one of Leonard Nimoy’s art projects….  “The Full Body Project”  http://www.rmichelson.com/Artist_Pages/Nimoy/pages/MaxBeaut.htm

Was this dream a sign???

Excert from Leonard Nimoy’s artist statement… “These women are interested in “fat liberation.” They hold jobs in the theater, the film industry and in business—and together they perform in a burlesque presentation called “Fat Bottom Revue.” The nature and degree of costuming and nudity in their performances is determined by the venue and the audience, which can range from children’s birthday parties, to stag parties. I wanted these pictures to be more about them. These women are projecting an image that is their own. And one that also stems from their own story rather than mine. Their self-esteem is strong. One of them has a degree in anthropology and will tell you that ideas of beauty and sexuality are “culture bound”—that these ideas are not universal or fixed, and that they vary and fluctuate depending on place and time. They will tell you that too many people suffer because the body they live in is not the body you find in the fashion magazines.”   This is me, suffering… and jealous of their self esteem!

  1. I don’t know which I like more about this thread… naked back, hint of tattoo, story about Leonard Nimoy, or the “ideas of beauty and sexuality are culture bound”, which I have been saying for years, being Jamaican… we have a different view. Your back by the way is gorgeous. Very curious to see the rest of that tattoo.
