After finishing “Braving the Wilderness” by Brene Brown, I’ve been examining issues of vulnerability and connection. The desire to be truly seen requires vulnerability according to Brown and a willingness to brave that wilderness of reveals the whole self no matter the consequences in order to fully connect as humans. Scary stuff right- show the real you, yes it seems. In pondering this in my own life I realize that there are plenty of times I’d rather not be seen or a desire for folks to see the “real and vulnerable” through my art, hence my latest totem story doll “I don’t want to be seen”. How does vulnerability make you feel?
