LifeLine is a reflection on the crisis of addiction both as a society and in one’s personal life and intends to reflect compassionate understanding for the addict’s choices while recognizing the desire and the gravitas associated with the choice to use.

~the fifth stanza of the accompanying poem by Genevieve Johnson:
Freedom
Un-perfecting until calm
Meandering around corners
With patience
Scoping the inner land
without judgment
landscapes under skin pulsing
fault lines gaps wounds: all doors to new territories
Being different as sacred
Are we alright?
the child within
is
an
oak walking
fractal self
becoming Arbutus
facing all winds
