I find the message you pass with this image so soothing, it really has a positive impact on me. See the balloon as the personal universe of somebody, as you say, an obstacle gets on your way and a string gets cut, yet you find alternatives to keep on travelling and exploring. Keep on using your imagination to create art Jennifer, you have a natural talent.
Wow, thank you so very much for this. I’m glad you got something from the image and I truly appreciate your kind words.
Broken Light, that is fantastic! Similar idea as Letters to the Mind but specifically for photographers. I am hoping to begin learning the art of photography. I’ll definitely keep Broken Light in mind once I deem myself a photographer!
Jennifer, if you read this. I would love if you would consider contributing something about PTSD on the Letters to the Mind blog. It’s just getting going. I think of it as a art therapy community. There are no writers, only contributors. Growing through sharing their mental disorders and hoping to help others better understand our lives. Communication and education are the key to ending stigma. All forms of contribution are welcome.
Here is the link for our about page: Letters to the Mind.
Anyone reading this who’s lives are impacted by mental illness is also welcome to contribute.
Thank you so much. I will check it out and most definitely contribute – just give me some time to figure out what.
Awesome, thanks Jennifer!
You are getting a lot of exposure lately. Well done. I also suffer from PTSD. Art and photography is my outlet too.
Thank you! And I’m sorry to hear that. It’s so good to have art as an outlet though.
I’m ok with it. I would go out and look for beautiful images around me which always lift my mood and refreshes my soul
That’s so wonderful to hear. It’s a great feeling to find/make something you’re proud of/find beauty in.
Have you submitted to Broken Light before? If not, you totally should, it’s nice to have a safe space to discuss the ptsd, etc. that helps inspire your work.
