The most beautiful things can’t be seen or touched they must be felt
— Helen Keller


To be seen. Let your guard down. Raw, naked, nothing to see here.

We stare at people all the time but what is it to be truly seen

Have you stared at yourself in the mirror lately?

I have not in years, truly looked at myself 

Centred, balanced and calm

. . .

I have trapped myself in bubble for the last five years.

Hidden in plain sight 

so no-one, including myself could feel or see the me behind the mask

I lost my true self and who I wanted to be


I am currently on a journey to take away the mask

And surrender to this world

To explore my softer, sensual and feminine side

Illuminated and now letting light in
