I first sketched this piece at a point in my time when I was fighting myself for my life. After two years, both grueling and enlightening--yet incredibly healing, I revisited this piece and saw a stark contrast to the initial meaning and title: 'fleeting'. Creating and completing this piece was emotional, relived, softening, and hundreds of other synonyms of the feeling of being whole and complete.
