TO LOVE HERSELF, EVERY WOMAN MUST LEARN TO BE BY HERSELF.
Dagmar Eva Kusiak began writing this collection of poetry to express her grief after breaking up with her fiancé. Her ritual began by writing a poem on a small piece of paper and then pasting it on her bedroom wall, eventually covering her wall with dozens of poems. She later combined the poems into an album and created drawings to express their meaning, building a collection about both a painful past and a journey into a positive future. Dagmar aims to build comfort, support, and a sense of hopefulness for women who are struggling. She invites all women to find their own paths and discover the pleasures of being still and alone, a journey which ultimately will help build loving relationships with others through a new sense of self-confidence.
