Day 39: Check out another "mirror fast" on The Beheld!

I'm super psyched to have met (electronically) another woman who is removing mirrors from her life and writing about it from a hip-intellectual/uber-cool/fem-feminist perspective.

Ms. Autumn Whitefield-Madrano from one of my now-favorite blogs, The-Beheld, is holding herself to a 31-day "mirror-fast" during the month of May!  (You may have also seen her project notes re-posted on the fabulous jezebel.com.)

Speaking to her hopes for her project, Autumn writes:

There’s nothing wrong with looking in the mirror. There’s nothing wrong with sometimes looking to your reflection—even when it is impossibly subjective, and backward at that—for a breath of fortitude, centeredness, and assurance. I just want to see what life is like when I’m not using that image as my anchor; I want to see how it affects the way I move through the world, the way I regard myself and others. I want to know what it’s like to sever a primary tie to one of my greatest personal flaws—extraordinary self-consciousness—and I want to discover what will fill the space that the mirror has occupied until now.


I couldn't have said it better myself, and I can't wait to swap tips as we move forward on these similar paths.  Best of luck Autumn!
