May’s Collage Kit, by Alia Wilhelm, was a visual meditation on endings and beginnings. As reader Ellen Grace’s collage puts it: “The scariest moment is always just before you start.” Ellen Grace and the other readers who sent collages fashioned from Alia’s kit were brave enough to make something where nothing existed before. The results are beautiful. See for yourself in this gallery.
