"During the first years, most of my journaling had to deal with my emotions - how I felt about this or that. Once I started to mine those journals, I found something deeper. Something beyond the flesh- my true self. In this twelve year process, I discovered beauty and dirt about myself. For instance, I realized that much of my longing to have someone to love and be loved back was really a longing to be heard, to be valued, to be shown affection and given acceptance."
