Life wants you nude not naked

by Christos Polydorou

​I am thin now, thinner than I’ve ever been. But I am not weak, and I am eating some things, and I am not trying to make myself disappear like I might have in the past. Living here has made me see myself and food and animals in a way that I have not before. I believe I am looking at consumption in a more holistic way than before, not self-righteous, one in which I understand myself as someone leaving carbon imprints all over the world, and I want them to be slight, like a doe’s. Besides we do not require a lot of space physically when we can have all the space we wish for spiritually. And whatever shrinking body I own is all mine.
