When I look at this collage, I see vulnerability, and my desire to carefully guard my heart against anything which may pierce it. I see, also, a desire to hide my vulnerability behind a wall of false toughness. I see a bareness of spirit, the result of my recovery from my addiction, a process which has stripped me bare of my many layers of Self. I see a delicacy, and with it, a sort of burgeoning yearn to reach out in my delicate vulnerability. Finally, in this collage, I see a gentle peace which has emerged from my heart, in the wake of letting go an old way of life. I see a desire to replace a life lived to extremes with grace and balance.
