Photo taken by contributor Danielle at Green Pond. She has been diagnosed with many things due to her intense mood shifts, including most-recently bipolar II disorder.
About this photo: “There is something beautiful about the curves of clouds. The way countless people can look at the same sky and see different things. I see a heart. And an arm reaching out beneath the heart from the left. Do you see it? The hand, an open fist. Now the heart is the profile of a woman’s face! Is it me? I am always changing too. People see different things when they see me at different times. I actually feel a lot like a cloud. Nice from a far. Elusive. Ever-changing.
I see darkness in this image, sadness, but also light. The outstretched arm appears to be holding onto the light of the setting sun. I hope I can hold onto a little light too. A little light of hope in the darkness.“
