In preparing my project, I also realized that the art I most enjoy is often interactive and offers the viewer an opportunity to participate. While you, my loyal or perhaps random reader, anxiously await for the printing press to cool, I offer a space for you to share a brief insight into your own influential relationship. I am curious to hear from others about how you too have been impacted by a relationship. Whether they are current or past relationships, do you reflect on how someone has changed you?
I often think we don't notice the changes in ourselves unless they are monumental or drastic. I know I didn't notice how much I had changed while in a relationship until I didn't seem to know the person looking back at me in the mirror. Have you had a similar experience? Sometimes these changes are good, and we happily reflect on them. Sometimes they are bad, and we can't believe that we actually allowed ourselves to become that person. All of our experiences change us in small ways or extreme ways.
I invite you to share your thoughts and your stories. Share your insights and your epiphanies. While the juicy details and horrifically embarrassing tidbits are often the most fun to dish, let's leave names out of the mix here. My recommendation is to stick with pronouns so that we do not offend or infringe on privacy.
