Considering what brought her to this moment
My friend has been struggling with the challenges of splitting up with her partner, losing her job as the economy changed, and trying to remain true to herself as a permanent resident while missing home. She's working though how the Canadian law system works and how to go through the proper channels to make sure she does everything correctly with her split up and dividing up of assets.
She came up to visit me to get away from the bad situation and to try to get perspective. I took this photo as she was contemplating her life, who she is, and where she wants to be. For her, this spot was very therapeutic and brought her some peace and clarity. I know how strong she is now and know she'll persevere and come out even stronger.
