A few days ago (3 to be exact) I got a phone call from Toronto and it turned out ot be one of the writers of Dose Magazine.
They were working on a feature story for Women's Day (today!) and wondered if I might be a part of it.
While the lovely writer was telling me all about it and getting me excited about the project my mind wasn't fully computing the fact that I had only a day and a half to get it in by deadline, so I agreed to do it. Then came the chaos.
The feature is called The Ideal Woman (you can read more by clicking the link or picking up a copy of Dose today) and what they wanted from me was an artistic compilation showing my view of the ideal woman and then I had to write a little piece explaining why I chose this representation of it.
"The ideal woman is faceless; it's not her beauty or flaws that define her. She is formless; her shape simply doesn't matter. Through my eyes and ideal woman is one whose body is definitive of noble character. Her arms are strong, not for appearance sake, but rather so her work is accomplished diligently. Her hands are not identified by perfect nails and pushed back cuticles but rather for her extension of them to the needy. Her mouth isn't defined by the colour of her lips but for the wisdom that it speaks and the faithful instruction it offers. Her clothes are strength and dignity"
So I haven't actually seen the paper yet but supposedly it will be in the center spread. As of yet, I've only found my writing online which you can check out here . Let me know if you see it! I'd love to know how it looks.
