February 10th: Imperfection…

‘One of the basic rules of the universe is that nothing is perfect. Perfection simply doesn’t exist…..Without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist’
Stephen Hawking

A black and white image of my lower abdomen, showing dark stretch marks on either side of my belly button and a dark linea nigra up the centre. I am wearing simple black knickers and my left hand is pulling down the side.

  1. It’s weird. On someone else’s body, I love to see those marks, want to touch them, connect with them as they’re a sign of something amazing. Yet on my own, I hate them.

    You are right though, perfection as a concept is flawed, and in terms of body image, downright destructive


  2. After many years my stretch marks are pale and silvery, I’d forgotten how dark they once were. And I found them quite a challenge when they were new. But I now have a wonderful 40 something year old daughter and grandchildren.
    Your marks like mine are reminder of the great cycles of life in which you and your family are enmeshed. If perfection is to be had at all it is in taking part in this cycle…
    Thanks for sharing, Livvy.

  3. That doesn’t look like an imperfection to me – it looks like an awesome, badass, testimony to the amazing work your body has done. I think the marks are beautiful.

  4. Like battle scars, wear them with pride…your body is capable of wondrous things, and your stretch marks are there to remind you of that, always !!
