To be strong does not mean to sprout muscles and flex. It means meeting one's own numinosity without fleeing, actively living with the wild nature in one's own way. It means to be able to learn, to be able to stand what we know. It means to stand and live.
― Clarissa Pinkola Estés

“The wild nature has a vast integrity to it. It means to establish one's territory, to find one's pack, to be in one's body with certainty and pride regardless of the body's gifts and limitations, to speak and act in one's own behalf, to be aware, alert, to draw on the innate feminine powers of intuition and sensing, to come into one's cycles, to find what one belongs to, to rise with dignity, to retain as much consciousness as possible.”

Shot on my birthday on Island with my dear friend, the beautiful Ali @ U N I V E R S E O F Á L I – cosplay / music / animals. Thanks also to my sis, L.A. West, who surprised me with a visit that day and came out to help.
