Sometimes our emotions fire up like a tornado. It can be joyful freedom, or sudden pain. Whatever the feeling, the universe in our head is very powerful. Where does all that energy go after it leaves us? Do we send them off into the outer space or do they wilt and die like a flower – creating fertilizer? Fortunately for me, I can make sense of some emotions by translating them into art. It is a nice by-product of having passionate feelings.
