Dreams of escape.
Storming around an empty castle.
Responsibility hurtled toward me like a high-speed train.
Some things are best left behind.
Home is suffocating.
Run toward glory.
A solo excursion.
Sometimes you can just push open a door and let yourself out.
A series of self-portraits by Eleanor.
