Rose Series

Photos taken by contributor Kitt O’Malley, a mother and wife who lives with bipolar disorder type II. Kitt is licensed in California as a Marriage and Family Therapist, but hasn’t practiced as a psychotherapist in over 20 years. She has a bachelors in legal studies from UC Berkeley, a masters in psychology from New College of California, and has attended Fuller Theological Seminary. Her career path has included working as a legal assistant, psychotherapist, and commercial real estate professional. Now, she advocates for those who, like her, live with mental illness, by writing and using social media.

About these photos: “Roses are quite simply beautiful. Their color and form soothe me, improve my mood, and give me hope. These photos were taken of roses in my yard and in the yards of my neighborhood. I am grateful to be surrounded by such beauty.

Find more from Kitt at her website and Flickr.

      Thank you so much. I absolutely adore roses. Their beauty awes me. Plus, they have thorns, reminding me that even the most beautiful can be prickly.

    Broken Light Collective published my Rose Series! I am truly honored. Broken Light is “the online photography gallery for people affected by mental illness. Broken Light’s main goal is to create a safe and accepting environment where photographers of all levels who are affected by mental health issues can display their work, as well as inspire one another to keep going and keep creating, despite the dark or scary places in which they may find themselves.”
