Suspension and Release

Suspension and Release. is the balance between what we hold onto and what we let go of. It is the recognition that people, things, and ideas serve a purpose, sometimes for a finite period, before they must be released. It takes intention to be able to hold onto what serves and to let go of what doesn’t. Suspension and Release. speaks to the balance of dichotomies, the midline between contradictions, and the illusion of separation.
