A Model Woman
She set out to become a model woman. It was what her mother taught her. But her mother’s models were rooted in the past, mannequins really and no longer in vogue, so her attempts were confused. Conformity was the issue but to which age, which youth should she conform now or then. It took her a long time, a lifetime. A lifetime of making up, of trying on and discarding, a lifetime of self discovery, a lifetime to throw away the wigs and become herself.
