Trust by anneri
When you think of trust
Does it lead you home
To a place that you only dream of
When you're all alone?
--Michael Jackson, from Keep the Faith
Even before I heard "Keep the Faith", I had this mental image of a utopian setting. It was my own little haven for when things weren't going like I wanted or would have liked. It was an intensely private place, one that no one could invade, and, until now, that no one knew about. When I heard those lines from "Keep the Faith", it reminded me of that place, which I hadn't visited in quite some time.
It is a little difficult to see in this image, but the painting has glitter on it, especially wherever the butterflies are. In person, it sparkles as you move around it, but it's difficult to capture that sparkle in a static image. If you look closely, though, you can see it.
