During moments of life's chaos outside my control, I realized that I naturally attempt to set small personal boundaries to meet the challenges. The process of loose paint contained on all sides, reflects this mechanism of self-preservation.
I try to remind myself to let life's events unfold naturally, as messy and uncomfortable as they sometimes are, for personal growth. Allowing the loose paint to break my set boundaries, on one or more sides, as to imitate the relinquishing of control I had tried to set. In the end, I find myself returning to the natural environment outside, the landscapes of earth and sky, to create a peaceful sanctuary inside me.
