M a s k s She had blue skin, and so did he. He kept it hidden, and so did she. They searched for blue their whole life through. Then passed right by - and never knew. #quotes #life #masks #poetry #wordart #photography #mood #expression #woman #femininity #womensmonth #girl #life #me #lifelessons #vulnerability #connection #perspective

‘Anyone who knew Violet well could tell she was thinking hard, because her long hair was tied up in a ribbon to keep it out of her eyes’ - Series of Unfortunate Events - - There is a very interesting relationship between women and their hair. We are controlling it, taming it, or freeing it somehow using these as metaphors for our souls. Styling it to reflect our personalities, long, short, colored, wavy, curly, straight, shaved, woven, braids, up, down, ponytails and messy buns. When a woman wants to ‘reinvent herself’ one of the first notable things she does is change her hair. - - At times a woman’s hair can reveal her inner thoughts or her attitudes. Sometimes I have mine down and in my face if I am feeling shy or I am throwing it up out of my face because I am ready to take on an awesome project. - - Having the ability to interact with our hair is important for women. 4 years ago a teenager with a limb difference shared with me that she was annoyed that she was unable to put up her hair on her own. The features of her arm made reaching behind her head, gathering hair, and navigate a ponytail holder a challenge. She shared that she had to decide in the morning if she wanted her hair up or down for school and having her mom complete the task. This worked fine in elementary and middle school sure, however now as a high schooler this became less fine- wanting to develop independence she asked how I put up my hair. - - We sat there on the grass exploring various stratigues and after a little while she did it on her own! It was messy and imperfect sure, but it was hers. She owned it. She was beautiful and powerful! - - In that moment I thought “This is what I want to do for the rest of my life” - - 2 years later I started an Occupational Therapy program at Boston University. - - Here’s to more projects and the freedom to express ourselves with our hair 💁🏻‍♀️ - - #yoocan #yoocandoanything #diversibility #disabilityawareness #stopstigma #luckyfin #luckyfinsrock #luckyfinproject #dontneed2 #tenfingersareoverrated #10fingersareoverrated #beauty #hair #expression #hairexpression #bodypositive #amputee #limbdifference #limbdifferenceawareness #symbrachydactyly
