I've decided to break up with my old self
That hesitating thief...who steals my confidence every time
I turn around to leave- but there you are looking like a lost child
and all I can think is you poor thing...
 all you need is to hold my hand, I can protect you 
I can lead you away from this jungle...
and that's when I see that I am separate from you
and yet... you are still me.

  2. Oh, this kind of thief of confidence is not easy to remove from the inside, but we must try every day.
    And every attempt is a success!

  3. Oh, very touching,
    dear Kristen. You have captured these special expression... in the face, but even in the pose. Eventually the inner child, no? Love is the answer. Doesn't it feels like freedom, when one is able to act really as an adult?!
    Ya, both, separate and integrated.

    Love
    Ariane.

  4. Hi! Love this post. I've been in a crisis of faith lately, concerning my own belief in my own ability to actually create something beautiful, meaningful, worthwhile, making a contribution, etc. so I 'hear' this post. Thanks Kristen so much! By the way what you do is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l. Your design sense is, to my mind, clean and clear. Just lovely! N, x
