April 2016 – Language

Dear Damsels,

It’s how we communicate, form relationships, and make ourselves heard. It’s in the words that we speak and in the movements of our bodies.

Conversations spoken through silence. Love letters carrying speeches. Warmth felt through taps on a phone screen.

It spills out of us when we’re talking to friends, nervously catches when talking to strangers, and gets stuck in our throats in a room full of people.

It fills our voices, hidden in our accents, tied up in our slang and the words we pretend to understand, condensing our sprawling thoughts into simple sentences.

However this theme speaks to you, tell us your stories. We can’t wait to hear what you’ve got to say.

Love and thanks,

DD x
