Value


Perception and representation matter. It is a determinate, almost finite, point of value. 



Sure, you say, you're a semi-intelligent, white lady with a degree who can pay the bills. What is your problem? 



Yep, all true. Nevertheless, I am a single mom of non-super mom status. I'm old and I'm fat. I have no place to settle in popular culture.



If it is constraining to me, it must be defeating for others. Finding a hero, a hope for value, matters.

What is fundamentally beautiful is compassion. . .  You can’t eat beauty. - Lupita Nyong’o

Very interesting he still couldn't eat, sad to think that wasn't very long ago.
