33 years old, living with cancer. A beautiful, light-hearted, strong young woman.

Stories of travel, freedom, faith, marriage and humour fill this Ink-Pressing. When we were exploring the imagination exercises, I asked Caroline:

"Today, if you were a symbol, what symbol would you be?" 

After some contemplation, she responded: 

"An emoji, the one with the girl holding one hand up - this one 💁🏻- a bit like a shrug."

It represented the way she feels right now - on a journey, one that she can't control but one that has faith, love and courage embedded within it. It was funny and real for all of us in the hospital room at that moment. 

Sometimes, the most simple questions and answers provide the most profound insights into someone's experience.
