This piece is called “The backdoor to my heart” because I tried to imagine my life without leather and I could not. I didn’t know how best to describe how important leather is until I had reiki and then this phrase was used. It reminded me that my heart has many desires from all sides and leather is a part of my heart history. The back door is an entrance to the heartfelt like a way to acknowledge that this is home.
