Release Me

Imagining or experiencing the moment or process of liberation, of deliverance from what holds you, confined or isolated, gripped in uncertainty or fear, held back by powerful forces or structures, kept apart from others, mired in confusion, dwelling in the dark.

To witness or feel this point in time in slow motion or rapid fire

To imagine it as really possible, even sustainable.

Release me. 

How do we imagine a world or ourselves changed after emerging from the grip of fear, solitude, anxiety, grief, oppression?

What does the other side of this prolonged condition look like ?

What occurs in the moment of release ?
