The Valley: Inspired by the fields that I played in as a child, by cartwheeling, by running and feeling freedom as though it would always be this way. Sometimes, it can be the tiniest details that allow you to feel so much. The grass stains are something that I know will annoy my mother when I return home, but every stain speaks of the fun that was had and the people who shaped my life. Living without care and without consequence, a bittersweet feeling of something that I will be forever grateful to have experienced but know that I can never live again.
