It DOES get better. . .


    Rage-a-holic

    The seeds of hate and anger are symbolically reflected in this image. I inherited the seeds of these hurtful, evil spirited monsters and their slimy, perverted companions from my abusive, tyrannical father. As I became an adult, it was painful to witness these monsters of rage explode from me, hurting those closest to me. The words and emotions that came out of my mouth seemed beyond my control, coming from deep inside, exploding at their will - not mine.

    By creating and understanding this image, I am able to recognize these ugly parts of myself. I see that although they are inside, they are NOT me. I need not fight, react to them or give them power. By examining these scary parts, I learned to recognize the triggers that give these monsters power and how to pull the plug so they no longer control my emotions or life.






    Solstice Summer

    The hard work has paid off with the discovery of a source of power and balance within myself. A joy fills my being as I continue to experience this wonderful stage in the cycle of healing and freedom from the pain of the past.






    Moonlit Cartwheels

    As a gift to my inner child I have created this image which includes children playing with no fear of the night.
