Mixed Media Monday - Heroes

Emily Dickinson has always been someone who intrigues me. She wrote the most evocative poetry despite a life of extreme difficulties. She lived in relative solitude near the end of her short life and only a handfull of her poetry was published in her lifetime. She is one of my heroes, the theme of this week's Mixed Media Monday challenge.
