A Life in Paint
A woman, rough water, sinking sun, storm coming in, all things that can represent her heart.
In this piece, I Want to Stay, there's a very deep and serious subject involved, the decision to stay on this planet, to remain in this life.
For those of us that have never been faced with overwhelming depression or the blackest of days, I say we're so fortunate. For those that have looked down that dark and terrible hallway, I'll say that I truly hope that strength comes in.
Imagine for a moment that you're someone who has clinical depression. Imagine living in this world, a world with so much beauty and potential for joy, yet you can't really grab that joy or feel it? What must that be like?
Never judge that person with depression. Never think you know exactly how they feel. Never, EVER give up on them.
