You see life for what it CAN be. You are a visionary.
A visionary that is also a survivor of sexual assault tends to brighten the world around him, radiating inspiration and encouragement to others while secretly suffering silent darkness and solitude.
You can't see me but I am seated next to you. And we are surrounded with a throng of silent others, all sitting within arms reach of one another....here in the dark.
Keep painting; your work may be the spark that helps someone locate the door to free us all.
"A burned bridge can be a gift; it prevents us from returning to a place we should have never been."
