Warrior Girl is about learning to listen to and respect my physical self. For years, I’ve treated my body as a second class citizen, ignoring its signals and messages in favour of the dictates of my know-it-all mind. Now, I am trying to listen, to pay attention: I want to dwell in the pleasure of grass under my feet, feel the breeze on my cheek. I want to notice the ache in my lower back, or the clench in my gut, and heed what my body is saying. We are animals, after all, not inanimate objects.
