Fall (Vulnerability) took me totally by surprise. Originally a leaf was in the center, but it changed to a Falling Figure (a motif I painted years ago). The figure demanded to be seen, just as everything is revealed in the Fall. As the leaves fall, we see and are seen. Both make us more Vulnerable. I mourn for what I have lost. I rejoice for what I have gained. It is a bittersweet time. And I learned that being Vulnerable is okay. Not always fun, but always okay.
