RESOUNDING SILENCE Resounding Silence Studies (2016) Between 2012 and 2016 my son was gradually diagnosed with anxiety, a mood disorder and depression. During this time, I felt alone, scared, and in the dark on how to be there for him. Even love and nurturing was not enough. My son has always loved playing in the ocean's waves and diving in it's depths. It has been a source of therapy for him since he was very young. He enjoys the feeling of buoyancy and effervescence. As he grew up, it became harder for him to find joy and face the demands of life. More often he couldn't bare to go near the same waters that reflected his fears, disquiet, and darkness. He is intelligent, creative, contemplative and inventive, yet anger, fear, and sadness increasingly crept into his mind to overshadow and disrupt an otherwise remarkable childhood.
