Tis a far far more stupid thing I have do than I have ever done before...
No not stupid, exposing, and Out there yes! Stupid no.
I realise at this moment that I love my hair. It has been with me for some considerable years and been an expression of much that has happened in my life.
Weird things go through my head like "What will my mother say" and I had this morning a moment where I remembered as a child being fixated with WW2 stories especially those of Holocaust victims. And of one photo which I have been trying to find but can't of a few young french women who had been punished as collaborators and were shaved. The WW2 photo shows the women clutching their babies born of German solders, and being chased through the streets.
They say that people get hair cuts or tattoos, piercings etc usually when something major has happened in their life. In my teenage street youth working years I had Mohawk (I cant believe I did that ) and then long blueblack Gothic tresses. After I go married I cut my hair throwing away long curls for short mature and modern. When I was accepted as an ordinand (not that long ago) a friend of mine took me celebrating by... you got it once more cutting off my curls. And today it all comes off, shaved.
Will my husband ever snuggle me again I wonder?
The difference today I guess is that it is not my major life crisis that is compelling me to do this but that of my dear friend.
I can do this. (shut up Delila its just hair)
