The Art of Losing You


Every time I awake
in the basking sun
I lounge, look over,
and mourn your absence

The art of losing you
is a daily battle
reminds me of putting the milk bowl down
for the dog that died last month

I offer my morning to your warmth
but you are long gone
a fading memory

Aaaaand here is your picture of the day!

It is no secret that I have an enormous archive of unreleased images. Why? I take a lot of photos. Since Fedora’s Box is such a personal project to me, and a labor of love, the images I create for it often don’t get seen for years. And, even then, they are only available to members of Fedoras Box. I hope self-exploration and nude women do not offend you. I find the process of learning to love myself started with stripping away my preconceived notions of beauty and self. By stripping the makeup, the clothing, the pretense, I was free to explore the world with new, loving eyes.

This compelled me to photograph other women’s journeys of finding self-love and exploration. Thus, I have a treasure chest of naked ladies called Fedoras Box.

Here is an image I edited today of Rocket as part of a series I call, “Lady of the Trees”.

I Once Dreamed of Freedom

I Once Dreamed of Freedom

I once was a child
who dreamed of freedom
so, I chose to be free.

I took my mind
and opened it up
like a flower in the sun
awaiting pollination.

I took my heartbreak
from shatters on the floor
and made a
stained glass window
for the outside to shine through.

I spend my time
shaping my body
and fortifying my tissue
so that I could always
have the strength to run to you.
