Conflict with the mind

by Sandra Vermeulen April. 12, 2012 4189 views

“If life is worth nothing,
Don't make me believe it is.”

Lesson I learned:
If the mind and the heart are broken, words of comfort do not help.
Time, patience and love bring rare moments of joy … but not today.

Impressive Sandra, only who is passing through such moments or following closely someone, can understand the deep despair of these words. A beautiful picture showing this holpless process.

Woorden die de ziel raken.. zo treffend en intens. Evenals het portret van je moeder.. Getekend door zware gedachten. Heel knap gefotografeerd Sandra!!

Excellent portrait technically, but I agree with Moira - hopefully someday you can capture another in a lighter moment...
