Oh for twisty, wavy hair:)
But wait,
I CAN show up for my very own life!!!
Reveling in this

Funny how when you show up in yours,
we start showing up in ours,
and then they shows up in theirs........
(love the way you start so
many waves)

You always get right straight to the essence, Rachel.

"Showing up for my very own life..."

This is just what it's about, isn't it?

Your art & your words make me want to break out into song.

I love you dearly.

zingo! this is one I will get one day for my curly girl aviv so she can celebrate her crowning glory and her own self everyday. beautiful!

Brooke said...

Oh, I love this one! This just totally made my day! Something about wearing curls no matter what we are doing!

Lately, I've embraced this more romantic part of me that loves curls, and the other day there was this great image of this proper woman in a novel I am reading, wrestling with her children and animals, with her ringlets flying! Sending love!

Michele from Pipi La La said...
