While I was pondering what aspect of Love, Life and Loss that I wanted to address this month I received an email from someone who shared a moving story about how her daughter dealt with a loss. This amazing 16-year-old created quite a visual masterpiece to assist her in processing through her feelings of grief and loss as well as to honor her loved one. I was so moved by the depth of her emotions and her ability to capture her feelings on tape that I just had to share them with you. In my work with children and adults I know the healing power that the arts afford. In fact, my writing, as is the case with many, was born out of sorrow and unresolved anger. Heather agreed to an interview in which she shares her journey through Love, Life, and loss. Her moving video is shared at the end of the segment.
