This series is truly touching. Though I am very sorry to hear about how familiar you are with death, I am incredibly happy that you have found peace. Many people don't ever make it to peace and it really makes me glad to know that you have. Congratulations and thank you for sharing such a personal and beautiful story!

This is probably the most amazing thing that I have seen! The way you are able to tell me and everyone else such an amazing story through your hats alone is beautiful, not to mention the explanation you gave at the beginning which was just as touching.

Happy the man, and happy he alone,
He who can call today his own;
He who, secure within, can say,
Tomorrow, do thy worst, for I have lived today

These pieces are absolutely beautiful and the emotion/state of being associated with each stage just jumped off the screen at me. There is deep truth in your work and it's very compelling. I love the description of each piece and the depth of thought and emotion put into them. The pieces tell a clear story and are definitely connected through style and colour choice. The way you've portrayed "Peace" suggests to me that you are truly as happy as you say you are and, for that I admire you.

I'm glad you found your process cathartic and I feel privileged to be someone with whom you've shared such a big part of yourself.

Your symbolism here is excellent, and well described both visually and with the accompanying text.  Simply, this is truly great work.

WOW - both the story and the hats are incredible. Thank you for sharing your story of healing.

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

I realize this will sound stupid, but I think my favorite is "False Cheerfulness"... It sort of reminds me of a jugglers dress. ^^
Anyway, I love projects with a meaning, and since Ive never heard of anyone putting this much thought into one, you are even more amazing than the others!
