One of my best friends, Emma, has a blog (Verbal Melange) through which I met her. Emma is exceptionally bright and very sweet. She's also about to get married.
After holding back for a year, Emma finally came forward and asked to participate in the pink boxing gloves project. She explained that she was reluctant to join until she got a mental grip on the symbolism of the gloves. An insight popped into her head recently and she became eager to display it.
Emma was pondering female strength -- what is it? Where does it come from? What does it represent and mean in our lives?
These are serious questions and Emma tackles them with intelligence. At the same time, she illustrates her insights with a very funny, whimsical photo of herself wearing the gloves. The picture is below and the insights are on her blog. Go visit! Now!
