SoulCollage Card "Elephant in the Corner"

I made this collage a few days ago eventhough in my heart I knew what my soul was trying to say, I just couldn't put it into words.  When I came across this definition today I was so happy to finally find a way to  put feelings into words...  "elephant in the corner" is an English idiom for an obvious truth that is being ignored or goes unaddressed. The idiomatic expression also applies to an obvious problem no one wants to discuss.

This collage is based on the idea that an elephant in our surroundings is impossible to overlook; thus, myself and others who pretend the elephant is not there may be concerning ourselves with relatively small and even irrelevant matters, compared to the looming big one.

I've come across this feeling at different points in my life and it's at these time I catch myself thinking "if I pretend it's not there will it go away"?  It never does! When looking at this card I hope to be reminded that facing the uncomfortable situations in my life will set me free, allowing me to be ME and living life in it's truest form.
