It’s easy for us to become trapped in our own minds. As we find ourselves surrounded by challenges, we may sometimes forget that we are not alone in feeling pain. It is through this pain that we grow and it is through dissecting these events that we learn from our struggles.

In this 16th volume of Digressions, you will find a juxtaposition of pain and happiness. In these pages is a collection of personal experiences, and each piece of expression is as unique as its creator. While every contributor’s story is different, their words, photography and artwork reflect what we all have in common. Each of us is on a journey of highs and lows that is distinctly human with its growing pains. We continually encounter new battles, but we also continually face them and learn to find strength in the end.
