the invisible exhibitionist was, in part, my response to social media. being a highly sensitive introvert, social media was especially difficult for me. why was everyone happy but me?
so instead of posting selfies with perfect hair, i inked how i saw myself, warts & all. instead of photos of my delicious meal or fantastic vacation, i posted free verse that glorified all of my short comings as a mother. as a daughter. as a friend & lover.
i didn’t want to show everyone how well i was doing, i wanted to reassure others that they were not alone in their struggles.
the invisible exhibitionist is available through lulu.com or contact me for an autographed copy.
