(please listen to the music as it adds to the viewing experience)
Again, conflicts press heavily upon me.
I ask if what I do be right?
I weigh the thoughts inside of of me,
Longing to answer my cries with insight.
Changes have come so quickly;
I am not as I was before.
Yet through these I still ponder,
Have I come to another door?
Will someone not listen?
Will someone not hear?
I ask for understanding
Yet am confronted with fear!
I am not alone,
But does anyone see
These unanswered questions
That now trouble me?
Perhaps I ask too much.
Perhaps I am unfair.
All I know is unknowing
And my continual tears. . .

Contrasting beauty with pain. The outside world’s perception was of a happily married, beautiful young wife & mother. Inside was a different story. Not the DREAM but a NIGHTMARE. . .
A collaboration – my sisters & I had a little photo shoot years ago. I came across this in my old photos box. This is a photo of my youngest sister Linda. I scanned it & used a decay technique in Photoshop using masking, texture & displacement maps
- Thanks for looking. . .
Here is the original.
- – Insight: At times this was how I saw what was happening to my sister when her husband (now ex) would belittle her & tell her no one but him would ever want her.
Created from this image – hope you enjoy it. .
Always beautiful, she is now happily remarried and a very successful business executive for a large company – him, not so much. . . karma. . . . :o)
