This black bear marks an unexpected change in my life. I had received it just before leaving for a several month work trip that ended abruptly.
When I returned to my studio, this beautifully mournful bear was waiting for me. The moment my dremel touched its skull I broke down in uncontrollable tears. I was overcome by its energy and need for me, and shocked that I had allowed something else to take me away from it for so long. This little bear was holding onto so much power and sadness, and releasing that mirrored back so perfectly onto my own life.
This bear is a shift. A realization that identity and priorities change, and that while the old is still valued and important, shifts often need to occur to make room for the new.
