The Old Shoes is a story about how love changes everything, how art can be a template for healing, how beauty transforms the soul, how support comes from unexpected sources, and how reincarnation can be a manifestation of dreams and a harvesting of seeds planted long ago. Through the lens of art, life ends and begins anew.
Mya, an abstract artist of the twenty-first century, epitomizes the soul's longing for connection, for community, and for communion with all that is. She jump-starts a healing process by facing a life crisis triggered by the past. Souls outside time and space come together to lead her to the validation she so desperately needs in order to trust again.

The door opens. The door closes. The cat meows.
The fracture becomes a fractal pointing to the whole.
