This is the found image for Lazarus before manipulation which I almost always do before using the image in the work. I try to avoid the use of copyright material. The text, “Arise Lazarus, Arise Lazarus from Thy bed and walk.” was then added to the image.

The final work will be uploaded to my online gallery at

The work is personal in that it marks my all but full recovery from a lifetime of what I refer to as Terminal Depression, terminal in that most depressives with this level of depression commit suicide.

Recovery in November 2012 and is akin to that of recovery from trauma. Trauma has a number of stages. each distinct in in its experience. At its onset, I came home in the evening and said to my partner, “I am embarking on a journey and I want to take you with me.”
