There you are; you are there. You are born buck naked and blatantly bare.

Almost as soon as you are born, the remnants of your sheath from the womb are removed, wiped away, and you are wrapped in a new protective layer for this world. At first a blanket to keep you warm, then clothing that does more than physically protect. It begins to define you, define you and guide you, beyond pink or blue.

Later, you need more for protection-an attitude, a gimmick, a look-from far more complex things. You create versions of you- varied personas to protect you from stressful people, jobs, events. You may wear different “you-s”, but don’t lose sight of the person under the facade. Be true to the real you.


Spin Your Yarn

Spin, spin-truth or lies?
Weave a sheath to hide beneath,
From yourself disguised.
