broken statue
I am

All that I have worked for has come to a forced stop and the impact chips away at my very foundations.
'The Scream' Tree
My mind is
a winter
A cold, quivering space full of biting winds that tear against surfaces to reveal torn and tender flesh whose vulnerability leaves my thoughts shrinking in fear and uncertainty.

I am a
little lost.

Tomorrow, I shall start exploring this thing to work out options and alternatives. But for now, I just need to sit quietly with this silent screaming lest my heart break into sobbing.

For now, all my efforts are reduced to this:
life on paper
And I am in mourning.

The posts should be specifically written in response to the challenge set.

This week’s challenge was to “Detail a three to five step story or process, and illustrate each of the steps with something visual”. You can see how other bloggers responded to the challenge, on Image vs. Text.

    1. Hey strawbs,
      sorry about the delayed response but the last couple of weeks have been a bit of a strain. Things are not as bad as they could be – which is something to be thankful for, but am struggling. Give me another week to get myself together and I’ll drop you a line.
