There is a Grand Human Predicament. It is that we seek to become enough, yet we never seem to be. There’s a sense that we will never be quite enough in this relentless pursuit of belonging. This is an antithetical counter view. A simpler way. This is an outline in just eight images.
It’s 2am. You’re wide awake. Feeling alone. Unseen. And inexplicably lost. Discontent despite all that you have around you. The people. Your life. Your dreams. You wear a face that tells the world you’re OK, but you’re not. You’re bone achingly tired from the relentless game of belonging.

Might it simply be the other way around? The experience is to find you across a clear and hallowed space. These simple guidelines might help.
