I suffer from a few mental health disorders, anxiety being one of them. An invisible, unexplainable angst inside me about nothing, it’s different to worry. There is so much going on in the world to worry about, but that is stuff I can understand or at least try to. I have social anxiety also, and on many occasions whilst I have felt uncomfortable, I twist and turn my beads. Sometimes I count them, sometimes slide them along, sometimes I just fiddle with them, but they help, in some small, tiny way, but nevertheless they help. I’d love to think I can help someone else to feel ok in their time of angst, I get it. The visual of the bracelets also help, the colours and relationship to a place that I am not immediately in, helps to divert my thoughts.

Ellery Creek Big Hole is a magical place that I revisit often through my works, I only wish I could revisit the location as often.
