thinking about the theme I wondered: when did I feel at my best?
when did I feel strong and the most 'me'?
in my early 30's!
I had just graduated from the Art Academy and
I was being pregnant for the first time
which made me feel I could conquer the world
becoming a mother, a huge change
beautiful, emotional, responsible
while loving, holding, mothering and caring I forgot about me
for a time....
so many roads, junctions and crossings
unknown paths and loose ends....
I love silence but laugh loud
I like to be on my own but love to touch and hold
people and things
I am often somber, a worrier and melancholic
but am easily pleased and moved by little things
I am a mother, a wife, a sister and a daughter
this is ME!
