Words and Illustrations by Meg Shamblen

The heart and the mind: both important organs that have rational functions and irrational emotional effects on the body and self. This piece represents my desire to reach a state of calm; acknowledging that despite any experienced pain, these organs give me life and an identity of my own. Creating this piece acted as a restorative process, allowing me to express inner feelings that have been itching to escape.
