“I tell you the past is a bucket of ashes,

so live not in your yesterdays,

nor just for tomorrow,

but in the here and now.”

~ Carl Sandburg

My intention behind this collection is not that we are rising from the ashes, though as humans we must. My intention is more about letting go. About reinventing ourselves and moving onward, not dwelling on past pains and troubles, and leaving the past in ashes.

Carrying the fire forward to ignite our next moments.

From this moment, we move forward. There are things we need to forget. There are instances (although sweet) that we cannot cling to. And that is what this Collection means to me:

Truly BEING in one small moment,
surrounded by movement and life passing by.

Holding on to this fragment of time and touch, knowing that in seconds things will have changed.

Thank you for reading.
Stay safe, stay sane, stay healthy.
Love & Sincerely, Katie
