The Red Tent" by Anita Diamant led me to realize our need for balanced feminine/masculine energy. Each of us uses this set of energy. I believe relationships, groups and societies depend on this balance.  I have begun investigating the portrayal of feminine energy through the study of flowers. I will continue by exploring this binary with "discussions" in three-dimensional form.
