About the piece: This piece was a reflection on the very feeling of disappointment. The deflation of the heart that was so ready to receive. It's an emotion that is difficult to face. I often try to maneuver situations so that I can somehow avoid it. I've disallowed myself from loving, from wanting, from excitement, from joy and happiness. All in the name of avoiding disappointment. Running from it is more painful and longer lasting than just allowing it to be experienced. It's just a burst balloon.
