Each individual, regardless of circumstances, holds a unique gift to share with the world … -Carolyn Rubenstein

For the past two weeks I have been reading pages of Writing as a Way of Healing each morning upon waking; I am in the midst of a “depression self-study” via my writing practice as a scheduled container of time and intention along with making my ICAD art.
