The instinct to survive is strongly built within us. It takes shape in unusual ways.
Sometimes it means retreating, creating a dark interior space to hide.
I had to do that. I needed to do that, just until I knew it was safe.
It’s safe now.
I’m walking out, walking through.
Through the passageway I created with my own hands, my own heart.
What I learned in the dark I will now share in the light, freely, with love.
This picture I painted over the past three days. The representations are obvious.
The exit is clearly marked.
I invite you to follow me through.
