Why I would like to be a part of this project?..........For most of my adult life, I have hated having photos taken of me. I really have disliked looking at myself in photos - just a frozen moment where I can now spend countless amounts of time scrutinizing and criticizing every inch of myself - over and over again. I would like to be done with that part of my life - I want to look at myself and see me for the beautiful woman that I am...........  What about this project speaks to me?.......... Well the nudity and womanly beauty - it is so honest and pure...........How do I think I would benefit?..........I have looked at my naked self as an object - something for someone else. I want to see my naked self for me and as me. I want to love my body and myself........... The inspiration that I can contribute is of rebirth and renewal. At 46 I want to become new inside - I want to accept myself, my body and my aging with strength and grace and no judgments. My story?.......... On top of what I have written so far - I have recently become clean and sober after many years of alcohol and marijuana use and abuse. I feel as though I have been reborn. I was so dead inside for the last few years - numb to the world - sleep walking - invisible. I have set myself free and want to shout it from the mountain tops - I am alive - I am free...........
