My body is like a container, holding the world inside. It takes such great strength and courage to hold the world, not unlike the famous Atlas. Living is holding the balance between holding and releasing, taking It in and expressing It back out again. Aches and pains arise in those tender places of too-long-holding. In this image is a fetus, and the birth is to take place up through the opening at the mouth area. I created Her during an Inner Journey through Art Therapy. She is an actual outline of my own form.
