Overcome, from the Roots and Wings Series by Sara Harley
my roots are strong
and will hold me
my friends gather near
and we will overcome
these troubled waters

Support is a two way street.

Ask for help when you need it.

Give help when someone else needs it.

If someone you know is having problems, do something nice for them.

Be proactive and avoid the offer of "if there's anything I can do, let me know", because lots of people won't actually ask for help.

Overcome is from my solo Roots+Wings exhibit held at the Margaret Hennigar Public Library in February 2018. Each image was paired with verse to represent emotions ranging from devastation through rejuvenation.

I believe trees represent growth and strength, with roots to ground us in our traditions. I see birds in flight as symbols of freedom, with the power of dreams and life renewed. Together, Roots + Wings create powerful images of inspiration and tools to heal the soul. These images are a symbolic representation of emotional healing, from devastation through rejuvenation.
