Clarity And Balance

 Victorian Fairy Tarot ~ Ace of Swords/Winter

Clarity of thought. I was puzzled last Sunday when I saw tributes and images referencing their mothers on my paper collage forum. It took a couple of hours for it to click that it was Mother's Day. I've been thinking about it all week and realized I have no clarity about my own mother. Those last years caring for her in my home while dementia took her were terrible. And that is the mother I see and hear when she comes to mind. 

So yesterday I made a collage piece for that mother. It's powerful. And in a small way, healing. I'll do some more until clarity and balance arrive. 


  1. Dementia has such a far-reaching effect. My SIL just had a stroke and is suffering some dementia symptoms. Her neurologist tells her it will get better. After taking care of her mother, she told him if it didn't, she wasn't sticking around.


I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
