Ok I thought I had this one sussed as soon as I saw the theme for the May Clarity Challenge only to then go into complete meltdown as I realised I was on the wrong track with my thoughts. I had confused CLOCKS with TIME ... duh!!!!!
A quick stress to the wonderful MaggieC (Silvercrafter) and she said to go with it and just get my piece done and enter ... so I have.
This is such a personal piece for me to make ... a real representation of my horrible journey through grief after losing mommy - it is an expansion on an earlier piece I did so even if I have missed the brief for this month's challenge it was one of those projects I just felt compelled to do.
The first panel pretty much speaks for itself ... the cogs and gears seemed to place themselves and kinda represent the tears that have flowed. The numbers represent the date and time I lost her but they are jumbled up as I did not want an "in your face" reminder. The little fob watch is stopped five minutes before she died .. oh, if only!
The second panel shows another very favourite verse that I have always loved and seemed to fit very well inbetween the other two verses. The broken watch parts, I hope, represent the infinity and eternity mentioned in the verse.
The third panel represents the start of things getting better for me.
Our favourite TV show is "Criminal Minds" and they always say a quote at the beginning and end of each episode. I had tingles when I heard this one and kept playing it back over and over and eventually Googled it. This quote changed my life and speaks for itself.
It most certainly was "MY MOMENT OF CLARITY" and from there on in I knew everything would, eventually, be ok.
