de-compartmentalisation

There is comfort in compartmentalisation, in the neatness of the boxes that we use to define our surroundings and in the inviolability of unseen lines that are traced for us before birth. But is anything truly immutable? Be it gender or body, shape or form, culture, place, or identity: however defining we take them to be, they are all constructs, figments of societal imagination that we have no divine right to impose on anyone, let alone on ourselves. The dreams we have and the fears that constrict us all relate to the crossing of boundaries, to the shedding of figurative skins or to the transposing of our lives to another place. They all stem from – and reach out to – the beguiling yonder of transfiguration.
