"Visually beautiful, and the sense of inside and out, both of the home but also my own body.
I felt safe but also excited, curious, a bit dangerous/unknown--the heart, the fish!"

“House as a Mirror was an opportunity to experience impermanence and to come
to realize what is happening every moment in a home, as opposed to at a far away retreat center."
