Rose Series

Broken Light Collective published my Rose Series! I am truly honored.

Broken Light is “the online photography gallery for people affected by mental illness. Broken Light’s main goal is to create a safe and accepting environment where photographers of all levels who are affected by mental health issues can display their work, as well as inspire one another to keep going and keep creating, despite the dark or scary places in which they may find themselves.”

Please visit Broken Light Collective and support their work with your tax-deductible donation.

Broken Light: A Photography Collective

Photos taken by contributor Kitt O’Malley, a mother and wife who lives with bipolar disorder type II. Kitt is licensed in California as a Marriage and Family Therapist, but hasn’t practiced as a psychotherapist in over 20 years. She has a bachelors in legal studies from UC Berkeley, a masters in psychology from New College of California, and has attended Fuller Theological Seminary. Her career path has included working as a legal assistant, psychotherapist, and commercial real estate professional. Now, she advocates for those who, like her, live with mental illness, by writing and using social media.

About these photos: “Roses are quite simply beautiful. Their color and form soothe me, improve my mood, and give me hope. These photos were taken of roses in my yard and in the yards of my neighborhood. I am grateful to be surrounded by such beauty.

Find more from Kitt at her website and Flickr.

      Lovely. Glad to remind you that summer will return. Apparently looking at images of nature can have a similar positive effect on our mood. Interesting, isn’t it? We are reminded of natural beauty, brought back there in our memory or in our imagination. Thank you. Gracias.
