I am not a twin, so I can’t speak intimately about the special bond shared by so many sets of twins.  At first I was at a loss as to why Twin Images starting showing up in my work, but these images continue to inform and instruct me in new ways.  I think their multilayered presence might fit into three general realms:  1) They represent the need we have for authentic and meaningful connections with other human beings, nature and ourselves;  2) They serve as symbols of the need to accept and integrate various parts of the self (some that may be estranged from, in competition with, or hidden from one another); and 3) They are a personal balm that somehow helps integrate the earthly absence of my first born daughter into the lives of our immediate family.
