Please welcome first-time contributor KB in Kansas. Many people know that KB has insomnia, but what they don’t know is that she also struggles with severe depression and an attachment disorder. Her public life is filled with so much color and helping people find their creative universes, though her private life feels more like a shadowed life gripped with so much grey. She calls those grey times “the Gaps.” KB describes the Gaps as the times when she feels lonely, stuck, and blocked creatively. She wants to quit everything, and develops a “grass is greener” mentality. Although creating can be difficult during the Gaps, she tries to capture them in photography, film, and music.
About this photo: “I took this in Wichita, Kansas. I heart trees and even more so, tree shadows. When you see any tree in any stage of its season or transformation, how can you not feel something?”
