A strong woman is sometimes strongly fed up
A strong woman is at times strongly rageful
A strong woman is on occasion deeply sorrowful
Beloved Shakti, teach me in this unbearable now about the cosmic dance of creation/destruction
We are so much more aware of destruction, so asleep to creation
Teach us in this now what we need to know
For strong women are strongly prepared to grow.

The Poetics of Fragility (63 minutes) is a narrative and optical exploration of the texture, vitality and aesthetics of fragility that interweaves story, poetry and critical inquiry to reclaim fragility as intrinsic to nature and human existence, not merely something to be bemoaned or overcome.
