"Yes I've been black but when I come back you'll know know know..." -Amy Winehouse
We all deal with a physical loss at one time or another. For some, the loss may be through death of a loved one and others, a path of part ways. While the physical presence of that person fades we find the memories sometimes never do. How do we move on or continue? How can I cry, cleanse, and then create? Closure is important for closing chapters. Time spent cleansing is necessary before beginning something new.
An artist in many ways I found my best work to stem from milestones in my life, no matter good or bad. I found that it was important for me to create poetry, short writings, or images in times of transitions. My creations, at times provided explanations better than my conversations. If you're hurt, take time to heal. If you're in great spirits, be present in your happiness. Know that your emotions are never something to compete with. Cry when it touched you, cleanse when labor was asked of you, and create when you've made it through.
