Four children have been grown and nurtured in my belly.

I see my shape formed from this stretch and release over three and a half years in total and love it now. The left side hangs a little lower if I lean over you. Someone’s foot repeatedly pushing on my stomach wall did that. The stretch marks appeared as my innie became an outie.  I remember the wonder as I saw for the first time where I had been connected to my mother.  The curves are still those of a fertile woman, hips large and rounded.  I surrender to my history and biology.  I embrace my future.

My belly has worked hard. Now is my time for pleasure and enjoyment. One of which is posting pictures of a fifty year old plus body with a sense of having finally come home to it.

Listen to your body. It knows what it wants.

  1. What a gorgeous shot – you have a stunning body – and affirming words. It feels so good to be comfortable in your own skin… there’s a lot of power in that feeling. Yea for relishing your body and embracing its strength!

  2. Wow Eye! You are deliciously exquisite! And the photo of you matches that stunning sensuality! 😉

    Mmmmmm, you have reminded me just how much of a man I am with a tempered beast inside that always wants to come out and play, appreciate, or devour. Bravo Eye, bravo! <3

I'd love to hear what you think!
