In Gretchen Book

I've had a few very dark weeks, between the new dog and other things I managed to slip back into pretty sever anxiety and depression. So much so that last week I finally broke, went to a psychiatrist and went on meds again, for the first time in over 8 years.

I know it's for the best, I can't waste time on this right now, I need to be strong and deal with a lot of stuff in my life, still, I can't help feeling like a failure and the first few weeks of getting used to the meds is somehow even worst then the anxiety and depression.

This is the first thing I made since this whole nightmare began.

These are dark times. I feel there is such a collective grief out in the world right now. It takes a lot of strength to do what you've done. The pieces reflect that power.

I'm sorry to read what you've been feeling, Aya, but these are beautiful pieces — all the more so because they come from such a personal place. I love them and I hope that the darkness recedes for you soon.

I know I say it almost every time, but I love how you draw hair. It's magical to me.

I hope you feel better soon Aya.
