This series depicts the process we all go through in learning to love oneself. It is an awkward, joyful, illuminating, exhausting, humorous and messy affair. Rapprochement is a word I believe approaches this state. We each live with conflict inside due to a lifetime of internal struggle, even with the softening of the intensity. Through the journey to love oneself, we are fearful and angry as well as exalted and light. ‘As within, so without.’ This outer reflection of love impacts other people around us. This is the most direct way of changing the world. Find compassion. Be bold. Be revolutionary. Love yourself.
