    My personal experience has been that art is a creative process that has helped me to express things I have such difficulty finding words for. Your art work is deeply touching and I think that sometimes people struggle with the truth of what depression and illness is.

    Sharing something that is so intimately connected to our experiences is not easy and yet change will never happen and people will never begin to truly understand unless they are able to see it.

    This month of blogs and the messages and images you are sharing is an important step towards bringing awareness and understanding.

    Love and blessings

      Thanks for your comment, Sweetie. It is indeed difficult to put such intimate work out on display, especially with the risk of exposure and subsequent risk of judgement or criticism. I would still very much like to mount the type of exhibition we once talked of: to showcase art that speaks to mental illness, but there is an element of fear there. I do believe it is something we will do, and relatively soon, because the amount of misinformation out there, including from professionals, is too high.

      Thanks for your support – I could not do this without you.

      Lots of love
