Someone recently ordered two of my art prints at the same time, one called "Held," and the other "Earth Holds You." Ever since, I've been noticing just how much we need to know we are held-- especially now, in these dark days of winter and pandemic.
So many of us are grieving deep, deep losses. Take a moment now to remember your own grief and loss during this year. Please take another moment to remember the losses of people you know. Another moment for the griefs of the people, places, animals, communities you know about. Then remember our neighbors for whom injustice has compounded loss.
Sometimes art, music, and poetry help us to feel and show up, so we can engage big, hard things like these. Today I turned back toward those two holding art images for some Presence and guidance. And I gathered some others that felt helpful to me. I offer them to you, here:
Blessings, dear ones. I grieve along with you. We are held in Love.
If it would help to keep images like these near you or to share them with others, find the Grief and Loss Collection in my online shop.
(PS, You may interpret these images in other ways than I have here. Not to worry. That's the power of art-- it can mean far more than one thing at a time!)
