|Richard Boulet, "The Alphabet Song", mixed media, 2004|
Boulet says of his illness: The trauma attached to a mental illness is a hard hand of cards to play and not to taken lightly. I still feel the psychological wounds of schizophrenia deep in my bones. With this said, it seems to me that no human being lives their life without psychological wounds of one sort or another. This is the price of being human. Perhaps our wounds are what make us empathetic and truly useful to others.
