Half female, half male.
Bilateral gynandromorphism is a rare genetic disorder occurring in insects, arachnids, crustaceans, and birds, where a strange combination of genetic material splits a creature perfectly in half, with one side male and one side female.

My heart resides in my mouth, everything I say is laced with love. I expect to be understood through my eyes and my eyes alone. I shouldn’t have to speak. Language is dangerous, misleading. I want to hold everything that means anything to me and give you nothing of myself to hold on to. You don’t deserve that. It is involuntary. Loving like this, through every stroke of the pen and page after page. I write because I love, I live because I write. Home is a marble held between a child’s thumb and forefinger, shot into everyone else’s, knocking them out of the circle. Once I wrap my fingers around yours, I can’t let go. Your impression clings to skin, your skin touched mine here a week ago. You meant something to me in that moment. Erasure isn’t an option. Life is in ink. I am always running out of paper. I crave permenance. Dangerousness, liveliness. The settling cold is the weight of you on my mind. How difficult this winter will be if I withdraw into myself.

Kathy Klein is a devout lover of plants, animals, people and the divine presence within all. She creates the danmalas by first centering herself in a meditative devotional space. Next she gathers flowers and natural objects while her mind is kept in mantra, resting in the immaterial. Then, through an act of grace and giving to all, she allows the materials to fall to the will of creation patterns. Her inspiration is given from the golden sound residing within perfect silence. They are reflections of the inexpressible, a gesture which points towards life’s abundance, an unspoken verse of Love. The danmalas remind us all to listen to the unheard voice of nature, creation, and the eternal mystery.
