i’ve had this image for some time. i felt a great attachment to it but whenever i thought to share it i felt a slight disconnection… a feeling of being lost within it, perhaps unsure where it (or maybe i) belongs.
a conversation with a darling friend today about life and the vastness of feelings and emotions came about, and i found myself connecting again and pulling things to me rather than pushing them away, and this time when i saw this little shed on it’s solitary pond glowing in their purple light, i found its place.
i realized it’s quite ok to have bad feelings and dark days. feeling detached, lonely, unloved, hating life… these things are the contrast we need to feel close, together, accepted, and loved more so than we could without its opposite.
in turn, from these feelings and thoughts of the varied palette of flavors life brings us (the delicious and the inedible) i found places for some of these pieces in my own heart as well as acceptance of them.
