* Bridge to Memories Video still, 15 x 26.5 in, 2013 This story is a glimpse into my mother's life. Orphaned at 12, she lived in the shadow of mental illness. She tried to break the chain of the beast that tailored her from her nervous breakdown at 16. Then shock treatments and state mental institutions were accepted patterns. None of todays drugs came on the market until 20 years after she died. Yet she felt lshe lived an ordinary life. i hope mental illness will not deter others today from reaching their goal.
