Five years ago today I asked two friends to help me with a project. Twelve is my favorite number and I wanted to do something really special for 12/12/12. It was a once-in-a-lifetime chance. I asked an artist friend to paint me. I wanted to celebrate myself, my body, my spirit, and do something different. It was a wonderful day, and made me feel both empowered and magical.
Looking back now, I realize it was my first step into the discovery of my sensual self.
My friend, Natasha from Zen Bubble, was the artist.
The finished product. Pre snake tattoo.
I finally made peace with my post-pregnancy belly with this lotus and waves.
[My deltoid and bicep are my favorite part of this photo, though.]
This is probably my favorite photo of the whole shoot.
Maybe this was the start of The Naked Mystic, too.
