true love…

leave a comment »

These are love stories, both happy and sad. Making them has helped to exorcize my past and manifest the future that I want to exist. They are spells cast and objects of catharsis, they make magic happen and contain it. Some of these objects are made up of numerous almost identical pieces, the repeated action enforces a lesson learned, a tall building leapt a roadblock turning into a milestone.
