I took a walk in the woods one day to clear my head. I found myself drawn to the roots exposed next to the river. Their unique ways to grasp at the earth and anchor the tree despite wind and water mesmerized me. At one point I thrust my hands into the earth, my heart crying out for those deep roots to anchor me down. This series is dedicated to all of the women who dig down deep when it's not easy. I'm honored to tell your stories.
