This piece has a deep meaning to me. It is a reflection of an accident that I was in with my husband and sister. When my life flashed before my eyes and I thought - 'FUCK, I am going to die on highway 43. Oh, god'. That actually passed though my head as I looked up at the asshole who ran a stop sign onto the highway where I was driving to go see my mom and dad for Easter. It was a hard time. And, the 2 years after were worse - my life put on hold dealing with recovery and constant pain. I will never be able to forget it - still living with some of the after effects of pain and limitation in some of my movements.
