The Human Condition

Heather Johnson's avatar Heather Johnson

This series is the fruit of a labor which plows through the raw truths that parallel each of our lives. A humble offering of one human’s interpretation of the beautiful nature of our joy, suffering, and interconnectedness as a body of living beings. I am deeply perplexed by the questions of what human beings find as the purpose of this life. Do you name it? Do you live it? Do you access that part of your brain? We are born dependent on another to survive. We live seemingly independent lives through any number of years, yet aren’t we still dependent on each other? Our need for another is once again physically evident as we enter the end of our lives. How lovely is the raw fact of our nature to survive paired with our will to thrive? We are relentless in our pursuit of something deeper and truer and dare I say, holy.
