"Living in a world that is all about maximizing what we have it should come as no surprise that loss is particularly difficult to deal with. The death of a loved one is an event that will challenge everything you believe in."

 

Living in a world that is all about maximizing what we have, loss is particularly difficult to deal with. I was 20 when I lost my mother and grandmother within the course of six weeks and know how overwhelming the hurt and sense of powerlessness can seem. It isn't until we are faced with the reality of loss that we are able to realize how much of who we are is actually rooted in and evolves around another person's life and being – even the way they viewed us. By sharing my experiences with death, bereavement, terminal

illness and the actual abandonment these events can cause I am putting my trust in the hope that there is a bigger purpose in the pain we all go through. And if someone can benefit from the mistakes I've made in my process and benefit from the things I've learned as a result and find a "short cut" then all the better. It gives deeper meaning to my work as a writer and artist, although I believe that the beauty of what we are allowed to create as we incorporate our own unique experiences,  a fingerprint of the essence and fabric of who we truly are, has intrinsic value itself.
