She has survived suicide attempts and years of self-harm. After wandering her way through life unable to trust and barely feeling alive, she is now fighting to live a healthy life. She has been reading, journaling, blogging and working hard to heal. She is finally taking care of herself and starting to feel better.
About this photo: “I caught this chase-scene mid-flight the other day. They are so beautiful! I can’t remember how many times I have watched a bird in flight and wished I could join them. I am often surprised by the fierceness of the Mocking-birds… they are so bold to chase off such large predators. I admire their spirit.”
