    Your image is perfect for a project I'm working on for the literacy empowerment program Books of Hope ( This program serves at-risk urban and immigrant youth ages 13-23 in Somerville, MA. Participants write poetry, short fiction, essays, plays, memoir, and hip-hop lit, and with the help of professional writers, educators, and designers, create published works. Students participate in a book tour throughout New England where they read from their books and sell their works.

    I'd like to adapt your image for the cover of a book of poetry called "Shattered Heart" written by a 14-year girl. Her theme is breaking up and I think your image would be the perfect representation of her body of work.

    Please let me know if this is OK and how you'd like to be credited on the back cover. Unfortunately, the schedule is tight and books are due to the printer Wednesday, so I'd appreciate a quick response.

    Thank you in advance. It's people like you, who take such great photos and offer a creative commons option, that make it possible for non-profit organizations like Books of Hope (with no budget!) to provide their students with awesome opportunities and experiences.

    Hi there! Just wanted to share with you.................. I Googled broken hearts tonight, looking for inspiration to mend my recently battered heart. Wanting to create a card, stuffed plush, clay creature or some other unique item. And instead I am attracted to your photo. Now here's the funny part, I am a mosaic artist & have done many similar to this! I guess we are drawn to what we know & makes us feel safe & secure. :) Thanks for sharing this lovely piece!

    I'm so glad everyone continues to enjoy and use this photo!

    Mystery Girl Mosaics / Angie You've made my morning! Thanks for stopping by. I can't take credit for the mosiac, only the (humble) photo, but people seem really moved by this idea. I choose to see this more as an image of healing than an image of damage. A heart is made from broken fragments, as all matured hearts are. I wish you well with your mending—continue making beautiful things. :)

    Thanks for the smile........... I like the positive perspective twist!! I would like to create a healing piece now rather than a broken one. Thanks for the add - I will enjoy perusing your imaginative photographs captured through your artist eye! :) Cheers!
