Pupae, 2021

What is love?

The online definition of a 'pupa,' is the life stage of some insects undergoing transformation between immature and mature stages.

We undergo so many transformations as people. It's a commonly held belief these days that we change so much in our lifetimes, that we might just change ourselves out of our relationships. But what if we give up too easy?* What if we can undergo transformations together - allowing for one another, making it not all about ourselves as individuals, but about the best for the other?

I think that's love. Sometimes it's painful and uncomfortable and we can only hope to emerge together intact.
