At the threshold

First a group portrait of my created friends who in turn create me, watching as I work.

 Next is a crossing the threshold story told in the form of a nesting doll. Life is full of thresholds that we cross and sometimes we don't even notice. It is how we grow, moving from dark to light, developing as beings in the world. Often at a threshold there is fear before we make the crossing.

I made these nesting dolls to be a reminder that it's OK to be afraid.
This is where we have the chance to whisper to each other "keep going..."

Nesting Dolls: Each one opens and contains the next
