Here are sections of a pattern i have been working on. I have really been thinking about the concept of 'freedom' a lot lately...freedom to evolve into the person you are meant to be; freedom to choose how you wish to live your life; and freedom in pursuing the goals you have set for yourself. These little characters, above, kind of...appeared, as i have been thinking about these issues surrounding freedom. I have named this pattern: 'Fly Free My Lovely.'
Without getting into all the ugly 'nitty-gritty' details, not too long ago, this idea of 'freedom,' for myself and the way i was wanting to live my life was threatened...in a nutshell...a manipulative, controlling man + the 'rules' of the family court = no say, no freedom for the person on the other end (me). This idea of freedom was something i have to admit, i had never really thought about, i had taken 'freedom' for granted. Not anymore. Now, 4 years on and 4 years of being strong, persistent and determined, it's all over....that part of my life is finished. Chapter closed. I have learnt an extraordinary amount. I have learnt about the person i am; how i wish to live the rest of my life and never to take for granted my freedom.
