Army of Ink Pockets Full of Hiding


Army of Ink waffle pants girl

She forever hoped that noone would ever find what she spent every waking hour hiding – and hiding from .

Personal footnote:  We all have secrets – and secret fears.  And sometimes we have ‘leftover’ fears, the ones we experienced long ago and the threat is actually long over but we feel the fear and respond to it like it’s still fresh and real.  This ‘ink’ seems to be suggesting an emptying of pockets to free herself from the lingering things that may still confine her – and/or define her in a negative light.

For some of us, our greatest task in life is to rewire our minds and the ingrained responses it triggers by challenging those fears – replacing them with new experiences.  Think … re-filling our pockets with good stuff.   Re-shaping ourself.  And each time you have a win (or even fail) you get stronger and more confident in doing things you once avoided.  Didn’t think you could do.  Her arrival seems to pose questions like… what’s stopping you making changes in your life?  What are you afraid of?  What are you hiding?  Hiding from?  What’s stopping you going places outside of your comfort zone?  ‘Feel the fear It’s how we grow.  Her waffle pants seem to suggest space for the filling – room to move?

(She appears in Clunk & Jam, 2019)
