This series began as an exercise to express my own anxieties and comment on their effects on myself and the way I perceive the world around me. As a poet, even my visual ideas are framed in verse, so it was natural to include a line or title to encapsulate the symbolism of many of the pieces.
Many of the same symbols continue into this section of the series, contained within a circle. The circle edge is meant to represent how life can seem orderly and constrained, even when inside the boundaries, there is a torrent of anxious activity. The culmination of this is the understanding that anxiety can sometimes be conquered, but more often than not, you just have to look above it.
