Having experienced military life it becomes easier to appreciate the importance of living life to its fullest each and every day.  With this in mind, the Jar in this collection expresses a metaphor.  It is easy to forget that humans are fragile just like Jars.  For individuals this fragility may manifest itself physically, mentally or emotionally.  However, there is often an attempt to conceal this fact from others.  That is why at first glance reflections on Jars may appear to be a mundane subject matter.  However, they reveal a deeper meaning that only the viewer can identify with because it touches something hidden within them.
