A little something I have been working on for a friend. The text is taken from a quote by the amazing bell hooks, educational theorist, feminist and anti-racist /social activist. The full quote says, 'I will not have my life narrowed down. I will not bow down to somebody else's whim or to someone else's ignorance.'
Stitching these words over, and over was (at the risk of sounding extremely hippy) actually quite meditative and empowering. I love the defiance and certainty of the statement. I will not have my life narrowed down.
