This image resonances deeply with me as I go through the aftermath of having recently left a very long relationship with someone I cared deeply for but who hurt me in some very significant ways through his own past hurts and profound fear of intimacy and closeness with any one person. This image, as soon as I saw it, flew right into my heart and began looking for a place to roost and come home. But I don't have a place for it to settle in, my trust in the possibility of partnership is lost for now. I hope to regain it in time. For now, just seeing this composition and being able to recognise in it the existence and strength of healthy bonds of intimacy and trust between lovers is enough.
