De samenvatting die ook op de achterkant van het boek vermeld staat:
This book is about daring to be honest about whatever it is you are feeling. And it is scary sometimes, because you can’t predict others’ reactions. But you do get to feel free. I have felt ashamed for my thoughts and feelings, and for a long time chose to let them create their own space inside my soul. I used it for my art. And for quite some time that gave me satisfaction, but it is not enough anymore. I liked being mysterious and hard to understand. Everything I created had a clear sadness about it, but was encrypted enough to keep people at a distance from seeing what I really felt. I got intensely close to a few people who have taught me how to open up. In that process I learned that I wanted them to know everything about me. All aspects. Without having to literally tell them everything, I created a way of introducing my true self to them, by letting them into the hallways of my soul. It’s all there, the hurt, the love, the beauty, the art, but most of all the truth. Welcome to my gallery!
