    Despite the highs and lows in life in life, if we continue to push through we will eventually find some resolution for ourselves whether that be good or bad. Wax & Wane is a reflection of what we all feel in life in terms of uncertainty and feeling lost. The various highs and lows can make us or break us but navigating through them regardless is essential to our fulfillment as individuals in this world.
