Spread 198 – The Expressive Ribcage February 1, 2013Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
Like my physical journal, the structure consisting of ribs and their connective tissue encloses and protects what’s inside. As I breathe, I speak, and I sing, my ribcage moves in and out, up and down, creating an expansive space where I can sway through the spaces between the bones or use them as a ladder to reach imagined heights. The existence of the protected space allows me to open, stretch, and let out. Although suspended by its edges, there is a sense of flight and transformation. There is always that promise of movement and sentience.
