Hi Ladies!

Here is my take on this months challenge at 'More Than Words' challenge Blog. 
You can get to the challenge Here.

Word Inspiration - ESCAPE
Creative Challenge - MOOD PHOTO
Here is my take on the challenge....
'Trying to ESCAPE the clutches of Depression'
If anyone has suffered depression you would know that its a delibitating experience and causes a lot of heartache for family, friends as well as yourself.
In October 2013 I found my partner deceased (unexpectantly), and so my battle with depression started. It's been two and a half years since that dreadful day but I'm starting to feel a little better about myself and my world!
I took my inspiration for my page from the lone tree, hence the loan person (you become). There is a small flock of birds on the mood photo, so I added black and grey birds to my page. I wanted to portray the experience of the world closing in on you and trying to squeeze you out! 

Sorry Ladies! This is not a rainbow page as depicted in the mood photo.

Depression is such a dark experience!

Thankyou for another great challenge MTW ladies!
