What do we do when others are hurting? We bring offerings of comfort and hope. And these flowers are my way of saying to the world: I love you and I care about your pain and we are all in this together. These flowers reach for healing and love and neighborliness, with their symbology of life and progress and growth.
So in the quiet of my post-election studio, I held our aching hearts close to mine and I did what I could to spread love.
