Raw, adjective: 7. brutally or grossly frank: a raw portrayal of human passions.

Every man is the builder of a temple, called his body, to the god he worships, after a style purely his own, nor can he get off by hammering marble instead. We are all sculptors and painters, and our material is our own flesh and blood and bones.
~ Henry David Thoreau, Walden

(I have posted this before, but I'm so in love with it, and so remarkably moved anew each time I read it, that I thought this sunny Tuesday morning deserving of a reminder. Hammer away, my little sculptors.)
