Frozen

Photo taken by contributor Karina Barszewski Churchill, a 38-year-old aspiring novelist and amateur photographer. Karina has bipolar disorder and generalized anxiety disorder, diagnosed in 1999. She graduated from Sarah Lawrence College with a concentration in creative writing. She then went on to the University of Buffalo to receive a Masters of Library Science. She is a lover of books and libraries. Unfortunately due to her mental illness she was only able to work as a librarian for a short time before going on SSD. She married a wonderful man in 2003 and they now share a house with Mojo (a Maine Coon Cat) and her best friend, Indiana (a Shetland Sheepdog with one blue eye and one brown eye).

About this photo: “This self-portrait was taken outdoors during February 2015 when the temperature was below 0⁰ Fahrenheit. It was inspired by the frozen landscape of Dr. Zhivago. My soul felt as frozen as the Russian terrain. I am looking to the heavens praying for the new life of spring.”

  1. What a beautiful self-portrait, Karina! Your eyes speak volumes. And your narrative is equally poetic and profound, “My soul felt as frozen as the Russian terrain. I am looking to the heavens praying for the new life of spring.” <–love this and it sounds like you have found your Spring :).
