A ritual of grief and expiation, August looks to the sky  as a means to connect to  the infinity of creation and  the  source of awareness. Mystics believe that the awareness of this unity may be sufficient to carry us through our most difficult times. The artist reflects on her  past  as she contemplates  her  impending mortality.
