Another piece in the series of Soul Books that symbolize the value and importance of the life, stories and soul’s of all creatures. Sometimes these Soul Books end up being a type of self-portrait. I often find myself feeling quite overwhelmed with all the suffering and injustice in this world and how do you not get crushed by it when you allow yourself to feel it?
