UNDER the CRESCENT MOON
Under the Crescent Moon is a compilation of art and writing from my Grief journals, created after losing my husband in March of 2020. The book is an intimate look into the power of creativity as a companion in the grieving process.
Since my husband died, I have maintained a twice-daily practice of sitting before the journals and allowing the creative process to be both a portal and a map. I am companioned by the art to guide me through the dark and uncertain journey of grief, as the images show me my inner territory. It is my hope that this book will be a salve for someone experiencing grief – a light in a dark time. Although the book is about my journey, I feel there are strands of the collective grief experience woven throughout.
