Sitting in the in-between space. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. ~Marianne Williamson. A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of 'A Course in Miracles.' The original drawing of 'Sitting in the in-between space' measured approximately 280 mms x 220 mms and was produced using graphite and coloured pencil on Kent drawing paper. Drawing and Photography: ©Alison Lee Cousland.
