Wow, what can I say to set this piece up other than it really blew me away? I love the style here. Technically, these are four full stories and if you know me, you know I have a thing for ‘4’.
Also, I think a little bit of me is enjoying that Danielle is also published by the Associated Christian Schools International. It really goes to show art has no bounds and that’s something we can all dig.
My poster fell last night. I remained calm until I saw the pin floating.
Every night I wake up to my baby crying. I had an abortion.
Every day I wake up next to my boyfriend. He shot himself four years ago.
“Dolls creep me out,” I say in front of a porcelain one. “I know, me too,” it says back.
