Through the Shadows

Through the Shadows is inspired by a dream of mine in Summer 2011. In the dream I was gazing at myself in the mirror while my reflection smiled back at me. It was such a weird, sly grin as if she knew what I’ve done wrong but she’d only give me a hint. Pretty soon I woke up and realized the dream made sense. The odd feeling I got from this dream made me aware of the imbalance parts of me. Then I learned to accept and see the world through my own shadows with firm eyes.

gaze

into me

while my heart is wide open




we cannot live the afternoon

of life as we did


in the morning
