INFINITELY AND WITHOUT
Innitely and Without Apology
Innitely and Without Apology considers the struggle between self-condence and self-doubt.
Ultimately, self-assurance can't be given to us by a parent, a teacher, or a partner, and the condence
we possess as children can be shaken in adolescence. We must learn to practice and renew our
condence; we must learn to listen to and trust our quietest instincts. Once we've practiced resilience,
though, we can face a crisis of condence and emerge irrepressible,
ready to persist even in the face of self-doubt.
This piece takes its title from a phrase of Grace Gorski's poem “A Fat Girl's Guide to Loving Her
Body,” from the anthology Nasty Women Poets (Lost Horse Press, 2017). The full line of the poem from
which the title is excerpted reads: “Remember, your bones contain fragments / of galaxies, and if the
universe can stretch / innitely and without apology, so can you.”
Innitely and Without Apology was commissioned by the Pasadena Symphony Association
and Margaret H. Sedenquist.
