Sometimes limbs need to be cut off.

"In ancient Greece, if you wanted to be famous or creative, to have influence or power, or to be where all the interesting people were doing and writing and acting or what have you, then you were certainly on the road to Athens (which is obviously a symbol of where all the action was.) In the myth of Procrustes, you had to pass by his bed in order to keep on the road. He put you on the bed and whatever part of you did not fit, he just cut off. Whack! So much for that piece! It's not going to be with you on the way to Athens. Whatever it was about you that needed to fit into what was accepted got stretched to fit the bed. So you got processed on the road to Athens."

 Limbs. July 2017  This piece was created on my forty-first birthday after inviting a visiting friend of a neighbour into my home who told me I was an African witch doctor and a white slave trader in former incarnations and that I may well be an exorcist. I spoke to a friend about the experience. This was her advice.
