Who we are & why we are

Welcome to the gallery site of Broken Light Collective. We are artists of all levels and abilities who are affected by mental illness. We create and we share our work for the therapeutic benefits to us, as well as others who may be struggling and feeling scared and alone. Together we can move from disconnected to collective.

Photo taken by Jim, a man from Texas who has struggled with depression for much of his life.

About the photo: I was scouting a locale for our local Cross Country team when I came across a tank filled with water this afternoon. I don’t get a lot of water images out in west TX, and this one took my breath away.

George Harrison’s mournful lyrics from “All things must pass”  rebounded off the water and into the sky. Good & bad, it all does pass.

“Sunrise doesn’t last all morning
A cloudburst doesn’t last all day
Seems my love is up and has left you with no warning
It’s not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away

Sunset doesn’t last all evening
A mind can blow those clouds away
After all this, my love is up and must be leaving
It’s not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away
All things must pass
None of life’s strings can last
So, I must be on my way
And face another day

Now the darkness only stays the night-time
In the morning it will fade away
Daylight is good at arriving at the right time
It’s not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away
All things must pass
All things must pass away”….George Harrison, the quiet one.”
