jPA Universal Dame 9 of 9
"Up rose the merry Sphinx
And crouched in stone no more;
She melted into purple cloud,
She silvered in the moon,
She spired into yellow flame,
She flowered in blossoms red;
She flowed into foaming wave,
She stood Monadnoc's head.
Through a thousand voices
Spoke the Universal Dame;
Who telleth one of my meanings
Is master of all I am."

Here, it's not one Universal Dame, but many. It is ALL of the events of my life, of my journey, of my truths that make up who I am today. It is upon the shoulders of all of those who have gone before me that I stand to build my own life, journey & reality. With each truth I discover in myself, I discover about this spectacular universe & glorious life.

I created a series of 9 ATC's inspired by the last stanza of Emerson's poem to illustrate the metamorphosis I've gone through during such a very difficult time - a way to help me see the hope in my struggles, the beauty in my brokenness and to rest in the faith that I would rise from this too.
