I’M FINE, REALLY.

This assemblage is a story of a very stressed out woman doing her best to make sure that everything seems like it is all just fine. I found a wrench that survived a catastrophic house fire and used it to hold her head gently while the vial of pills prop open the tool. Hands reach out from below.
