the only safe place in a storm
is in the eye
curl inside and wait
time stands still...
Editor's Note from Karen Adler: As a poet, and also as someone who's suffered from depression and anxiety in the past, I discovered the power of poetry in dealing with my own difficult emotional states. As an art therapist, I use all art forms to help inform clients of their inner world. I initially asked Jeannie if she'd send me some poems for Mental Health Month, which is September here in Australia. Much time has elapsed since then but Jeannie's poetry still shows the beauty and power of working with our emotions in poetic form, bringing about an alchemical transformation so that depression is lessened, lightened but also given the validation it warrants as a signpost to our inner world.
