I’m thrilled to share news that Skirt! Magazine published my personal essay, “Girl Before a Mirror” in their June issue!
You can find the print magazine, available for free, in the following cities: Augusta, GA; Charleston, SC; Chicago, IL; Columbia, SC; Lexington, KY.
“When I met Deborah it was sort of like meeting a mirror of myself, though perhaps something more like the famous Picasso painting, Girl Before a Mirror. Breasts and limbs popped out in delineation, then were muted in the reflection. I squinted at a purple shadow occluding the face, while shades of red and orange illumined the forehead and cheek. Eyes stared back at me, familiar but inscrutable as olives. As I observed and tried to discern these distorted and magnified characteristics, I could see myself better in her and yet saw some of what I’m missing.”
