Body Painting Edited my face.jpg

“The ill body is certainly not mute—it speaks eloquently in pains and symptoms—but it is inarticulate. We must speak for the body, and such speech is quickly frustrated: speech presents itself as being about the body rather than of it. The body is often alienated, literally ‘made strange,’ as it is told in stories that are instigated by a need to make it familiar.”

-Arthur Frank in The Wounded Storyteller
