Reclaiming Ourselves Showcase
 
Hello my loves!! Today I want to promote an art event in Murfreesboro, TN that I participate in every year called Reclaiming Ourselves Showcase. It is an art show for and about survivors of domestic violence, and it is very near and dear to my heart. As some of you already know, I have a very complicated relationship with domestic violence, having been a victim and a perpetrator in the past. Being raised with violence led me to believe that everyone lived like that, with violence as part of their every day lives, and I attached myself to proverbs like "You only hurt the ones you love," and told myself "This pain proves they love me." It took me many years to learn that other people didn't live their lives in physical, emotional, and psychological distress, and I have since dedicated myself to nonviolence. It is still a struggle to stay committed to nonviolence when my ingrained instinct from childhood is to rage out at all times, but it has been a worthy journey that I will continue to rededicate myself to every day. The Reclaiming Ourselves showcase is in the gallery of Todd Hall at Middle Tennessee State University, and their opening night is tomorrow evening from 5:00-7:00pm. There will be live music and tons of good people, so go go go!!! Event link: https://www.facebook.com/events/337372249927822/?ti=icl All my love, Sophie

For this one I will have to quote Amanda Palmer, "This is a lot of money to spend on an artist, and you are really showing me some serious art-love here. THANK YOU." For this pledge you will get everything above, plus I will send along one private thing per month; something that is not and will not be released to the general public. It could be a blog about my personal life, a video of me singing (warbling, caterwauling) my current obsession song, or even photos of me with my family (as long as it doesn't get creepy. If it gets creepy we will have to revisit this.). It could be a very personal poem or story, it could be an essay I'm insecure about, it could be a NSFW short story. This one I will be playing by ear.
