As a young lady, I found the linear nature of speaking challenging. I recall years of frustration with not being able to express what was in my mind in the verbal fashion most of the world uses for communication. For many years, I retreated into the visual imagery of my art to "talk about" challenging topics that I did not have the skills to convey verbally. If I couldn't communicate all the aspects of what I was thinking, I didn't want to communicate anything at all, particularly when it came to my inner world - my thoughts and my feelings.
It seemed that for me to fully express a concept, linear speech was too limited and confusing. I would need to give the other person a "3D thought block" - the seed of the idea in the center, but also including all of the associated stories and memories that would help the other person "see" all the parts that contributed to the full idea. Separating parts out would at best give an incomplete picture. Chrysallis depicts this tangle of information with the seed of the idea, as full of potential as a complete human being, ready to blossom at the center, if, through conversation, we can only get there.
