Of Light and Loneliness

For as long as I can remember I have carried a feeling of being out of place

I've often dressed, spoke, and seemingly felt differently than most everyone I knew. I never really felt I had a place where I fully belonged; even sometimes among my dearest friends - and often I’d find myself wandering elsewhere on my own for refuge in those moments.

I know this is not always true of my life, and there have been many times where I have felt understood and known. But even then a little piece of me has felt this open space in my heart for something I've not yet known.

Something about being alone has served as a great comfort to me when I feel like this. I'm left only to the world and my thoughts, and focus on the quiet moments around me.

This series has served as a tribute to that.
