What Is Real?


Photo taken by contributor Annie, a woman who lives with depression, PTSD, anxiety and dissociation. Annie has survived a suicide attempt. Art, music, reading, writing, yoga, meditation and walking help when weather permits. Her feline companion Rumi is her best friend.

About this photo: “I hope that one day I will live far away from this place of cement, glass and steel. A cold environment where nothing seems real saying, ‘Do not touch’.

    Space is real. Space to fall and rebound. Look outside, inside. There’s lots of it.

    Water, stories, the body, all the things we do, are mediums that hide and show what’s hidden. Rumi
