This was actually the first piece I did in this series… I think because this is where I feel I am at right now. I am going back to school to be a teacher… something I never felt adequate being able to do… it hasn’t been easy, but I am continuing to find inner healing and reading Ed Miyakawa’s book opened my eyes to the truth of what happened 50 years ago.

I refuse to go back... the voices of condemnation grow fainter... and I am beginning to love myself as well as my son.
