AÃ¡liÃ¡en Woman explores my introspective journey beginning with a mental health journey to delve into traumas of my past.

With Walker’s “Overcoming Speechlessness,” I consolidated my internal rhythm with the book’s quote, Because consciousness is comforting.Ã by Lyrric Jackson, Performing Arts, USA / Suwanee, GA, Day 22 / July 27, 2020.
