Today my grandson and I created collages together. He told me he wanted to see what came up in the moment. As my grandson described his collage, I made a note of some of the words and phrases he said; this is what emerged…
Very recently my grandson experienced a life threatening event in which he showed a calm and courage beyond his years. He told me that experiencing this event has changed him. When he was creating his collage he focused a lot on his ‘portal’. He talked about its significance; passing through something that leaves one the same yet different.
“Vulnerability is the portal to feeling. Feeling is the portal to strength.”
