*The use of feminine/masculine in my work is never exclusionary, as within each of us resides qualities of both. I strive to be ever-sensitive in my language regarding the many beautiful ways that gender identity and sexuality express themselves in our world. I am always open to gentle feedback, from a place of love, if I fall short of your expectations regarding this matter. Many thanks, Alisha
