Armed with defining details and feminine shapes
the sleeve once again gathers style momentum
and reclaims its place as a statement maker.

2017-jan-15-natalia-drepina-#1Working daily in the messy compost pile of my life.
Digging deep and turning it over.
Searching through the festering, decaying soil
for signs of life, death and resurrection.
Discovering that there in my dirt
lies new life.

Black-Shoe 2

Learning to understand that the wounds that come through life are sacred wounds.
They come to destroy my false self
to get me down to something deeper
something better
a truer expression of who I am.
