A whirlpool is a turbulent situation from which it is hard to escape. Life is a whirlpool. Life is a vortex of energy swirling around taking you in one direction and throwing you into another. Yet there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. I wanted to make this from materials that are calm, peaceful & beautiful – yet strong and resilient. It’s all about surrendering and having hope.
