Processes: A Meditation by Terra Oliveira
These illustrated verses are a witnessing of one's self, in all that we have, in all that we've lost, in all that's on its way to us.
Processes: A Meditation unravels a small, unclouded window into a life in reflection of itself, as energy felt through the body, with the intent to bring the reader back to their awareness; their spiritual center.
