The Birth of Black Venus
I ripped this page out of an issue of Marie Claire magazines years ago.
Even though I've purged my magazine files many times over the years, I've always hung onto this page. There's just something about this lovely woman that sticks with me.
If you read the scan she just talks about how she's never been happy with the way she looks. She's had a boob job, surgery on her feet, and damaged her body with fad diets.
Nothing was ever enough. It's really easy for me to look at this pic and think "Damn, there is nothing wrong with the way she looks, why is she tripping?" But, if I'm being honest, at thirty-something years old, I still do the same thing to myself every now and then.
