The Chair

I cannot express enough how unsettling this photo is. My friends felt it is a powerful expression of what brought life to TheraPaint. I feel it is an expression of the worst parts of my life. I still despise this chair – even though it has and still does help me enjoy what I can. I’ve never felt that an object can have so much control over you. That composition of two things – one I love dearly and the other I abhor – could be a hard thing to lay my eyes on. I argued with those two friends about even allowing them to take this photograph. Finally, I caved in but explained that I did not want to see or hear anything about it. It’s just a photo. How could it hold such power? I still can’t accept this – this image nor this reality. Yet, here we are. Over eleven months in and only God knows how many more.
