Muse: Half-Hanged Mary

A small tribute to a woman of history. The words are from Margaret Atwood's poem "Half-Hanged Mary" about a woman whom she believed to be her ancestor. Half-Hanged Mary was executed for suspected witchcraft in Salem, but she did not die. She seems a fitting muse for the beginning of the wildest and most mysterious month. The photos are mine, taken of my friend Arianna who encourages me to be my wildest self.

This is who I am. I want this space to follow.
