ec · dy · sis (n). – the molting of the cuticle in many invertebrates of the clade Ecdysozoa. These animals’ cuticles form a largely inelastic exoskeleton and are shed during growth. A new, larger covering is formed thereafter. Think about nakedness, the risk, putting one’s whole body on the line. A new emotional and physical agency comes with the freedom from a protective shell combining simultaneously with the anxiety of waiting for the stronger exoskeleton to form. As in ecdysis, the objects act as tethers to those painful thrilling moments, continuing to conduct the original energy, lambent like burning filaments. The vulnerable performance act of all creation, whether public or private, marks the beginning.
