Healing Process

5 May 2020 A dear friend died suddenly a few months ago. She was bright, kind, and a loving wife & mother. She had a love of nature, of books and always went out of her way to help others. Her kindness is what stood out most to me.


With such a loss, there is a kind of helplessness that sets in. Death is a part of life and yet, it is so easy to turn a blind eye to it, until we are confronted with it. There is little to do but move through the grieving process.


For me creating is also a healing process. It does’t remove the grief, nor is this merely a distraction but it does allow me to meditate on the loss as I create something new. This Foundling is the third “memorial piece” I have created.
