The joy of having been born a woman

“Georgia O’Keefe lived and painted for nearly a century and died still painting.

She raised a garden of paintings in the solitude of the desert.

Georgia’s flowers—clitoris, vulva, vagina, nipple, belly button—were chalices for a thanksgiving mass for the joy of having been born a woman.”

~Eduardo Galeano, Children of the Days

Painting by Georgia O'Keefe
