Nowadays All My Tears Are Bittersweet (self portrait)2021
In the isolation of lockdown i've had to sit with pain I have numbed for years and the emotions began flowing freely. I spent so long trying not to cry and just bluster my way through life that now each tear feels like a blessing. Nowadays, all my tears are bittersweet for I am filled with joy simply to be ABLE to FEEL, to allow myself to feel, anything. And it feels good.
