"No life is more important than another. And nothing has been without purpose. Nothing. What if we are all part of a great pattern that we may someday understand? And one day, when we have done what we alone are capable of doing, we get to rise up and reunite with those we have loved the most, forever embraced. What if we get to become... stars."

Beverly Penn, in the movie Winter's Tale


Happy 2015, everyone! I'm happy to have this new image to release along with a blog post,, looking back over 2014. It's been a tumultuous year, to say the least. I'm glad to have this fresh start!

This image was inspire by the movie Winter's Tale, which I quite enjoyed. My mom and I watched it together after she very kindly drove over to keep me company (and make sure I actually rested) after my second, emergency, sinus surgery.

Winter's Tale ended up being very much a "Sarah movie" as Geoff calls them. Critics weren't overly taken with it, and I can see their arguments, but at the end of the day, I still really enjoyed the movie. It's hard to make mythic, hopeful movies which are sweet without being cloying or heavy-handed, and I felt that Winter's Tale balanced itself well. It's also very beautiful visually and several of the themes inspired new creations of my own.

One strong theme through the movie is that "everything happens for a reason," even the bad things. This year has been so difficult, for so many reasons and ways, it's sometimes very hard to hold onto the hope that there could be a greater good coming out of all this.

This image is a peace-offering of sorts to the world, the universe, fate, god, whatever. A symbol that I don't have all the answers, that I don't understand why these things are happening, but that I am trusting that the good will be revealed. That there is indeed a grand scheme and this part of my life serves a purpose as well as the good parts.

At the moment it feels a bit like a blind faith, but I have decided this is the mindset I need to start off 2015. I am taking my leap; I hope the universe catches me.
