I thank the higher powers that be for the abililty to create. Photography and art is beyond crucial to me. At times there are no words, and the only way to tell the story or convey a message is through a picture.
In the past, people would view my art, the darker stuff, and actually use it against me, sending it to people I love and care about. Insane, I know. I have nothing to hide. My wish was always for someone to look at something I create (regardless if it is dark or light) and be left with questions, or to come back to look a little deeper.
Always there is a message in everything an artist creates.

I have shed the past of darkness that has consumed me my whole life. I believe I got lyme disease to wake me up, to teach me more, to open my eyes even wider so I could learn how to appreciate everything.
There has been a lot of toxicity in my life.
Every once in awhile, someone will ask me about my life, my past, etc.
Most of the time it is very uneasy for them to process, because it is far too much to even begin to comprehend.
I try to remain positive and full of light.
I have learned to not let the past and negative people affect me. There is too much to be greatful and thankful for. There are too many souls in my life who fill me up with so much compassion, friendship and support.
I will remain mute in regards to the things I have unfortunately witnessed and become a victim of. There are many types of violence, I have experienced them all. Those evil doers of the past who ‘monitor’ my every move, I am no longer interested or afraid of you. I have moved on and grown. I no longer ask about, view or think about you. My life is full of so much goodness, despite my battle, that I choose to happily swim in the seas of love that surround me. You can’t hurt me anymore♥

    Beautiful work Heather. I can’t imagine people using YOUR art against you; and at the same time I think those things we share from our hearts need not be hidden from those we love and care about. Sometimes it is wiser to be silent about something – as long as what you share or keep quiet doesn’t hurt you. And good for you for being able to move on unafraid of those evil doers monitoring you!

  • Thank you sweet Mui-Ling♥
    this piece and the title is so very fitting…
    I will remain silent. It used to upset me a great deal, but again whatever you focus your attention on grows, we all have the choice to choose where/what/whom we want to focus on. I was only hurting myself. I have a wonderful life with fabulous uplifting brilliantly passionate artists like yourself to keep my mind and heart intact. (I don’t mean that in a creepy way). Thank you for your visit my dear and your kind words, and for understanding so very much with so few words needed.

    What a powerful and quite brilliant work Heather. I keep looking at this, and think WOW! I love the thought process behind this and the execution.
    I also find it immensely interesting that it is actually a positive statement and title.
    Normally one would think the opposite with the words ‘mute witness’… but the fact that you have now CHOSEN to be mute about some past atrocities and atrocious people of your past, and by doing so minimise their power over you… nearly dismissing them as not worth the effort anymore because actually living in the present is far more important. I find it ever so pleasing. Finding the opposite in what we expect at first viewing.
    Well done Heather King… not just for the creation of a very important and amazing work… but also for reaching this important and amazing milestone in your personal development.
    Love you heaps my gorgeous friend.
