I have a few very good friends, and what we all have in common is a mutual willingness to be brutally honest with each other and expose our naked vulnerabilities to each other. Being bare with every ugly, awkward truth exposed risks being mocked, shunned, and bullied—yet the reward when truth resonates with others and the experiences shared in common is a deeper understanding of how we are all connected to each other and the rest of the world around us. This piece was inspired by that risk/reward relationship and is part of my exploration of what beauty is and who is in charge of that determination.
