Life & Death Personified

Someone wrote…

I don’t want to be a woman or a man. I want to be a spirit, a concept, a piece of art. I want to be life and death personified: the Grim Reaper, a butterfly, a prism.

What’s your experience?


And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    An absolutely beautiful sentiment, and one I can certainly relate to. A part of me seeks transcendence above the human condition.

    Daemn, WORD! I’ve heard anyone except myself put it like that before… Pleased to not be alone.
