BOXES beyond borders

A box of stories

Jaya Asmi

Artist from India

This is a box of stories- stories of how these women have inspired me, directly or indirectly. It is also full of ghosts-countless nameless/faceless other females who through their words or actions kindle our desire to tackle our Deepest Fears, prompt us to Brave the Wilderness or galvanize us into action. It is through them that I have learned to respect strength, not power; value the lotus-like ability to thrive in muddy waters and appreciate all that I have. Because I have so much… Most of all, I have the company of these brave souls.
