I quickly, absentmindedly painted this after I finished "Breaking free of the Codependency Trap" by Janae and Barry Weinhold, it states "neither co nor counter dependency oriented social systems make us responsible for taking care of our own needs or for looking at how our personal behavior is part of a larger problem."

The lens with which we see. From my Multicultural Art Therapy class, I learned about vertical and horizontal identity. Vertical being race, language, etc. and horizontal being sexuality, physical disability, etc. As Solomon points out in his book "Far from the Tree," in mainstream society, there is no attempt to homogenize vertical traits, people often want to "fix" horizontal traits. In actuality, both horizontal and vertical traits are part of our unique identity.

I created these simple images titled Seek, Ripple and Thread as reminders. For instance, when I find myself taking something out on someone else, I think of the ripple image and I ask myself, "Is this really what I want to be spreading out into the greater collective?"
