We all know the old stories that tell us the Sun and Moon are Lovers. But are we familiar with the strength and ease they hold in their gender fluidity? The way they can dance gracefully between the masculine and feminine personifications we assign them? Or what about the idea that we hold all of this and more inside of us, regardless of our bodies. This piece is about creation, love, and most importantly about falling in love with yourself. It’s about recognizing the validity and importance of plants of both the day and the night, the ways in which they are helpful to us along our journeys, and pushing past our ideas of what is needed to bring forth new life. It is about decolonizing our relationship to the living world, untangling and re-weaving our inner dialogue surrounding medicine, food, sexuality, gender expression, and our responsibility to each other and to the land. Ultimately, The Lovers is about Healing.
