The Mayfly has a lifespan of 24 hours, just enough time to reproduce and dance together in small groups.  In this week’s Foto Friday, we examine how a woman navigates through a world created in mans image. If the tall tale is true, if we sprang from the rib of a man named Adam, from the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, a woman’s place is not much different from a housefly; ticking a few days longer within a household than in the wild. How tiresome it must be to maintain the elusiveness of a creature and the form and mind of the Goddess Athena. Perhaps women weren’t meant to live past their prime. How does it feel to simply be?
