The Anatomy of Loss

Loss comes in many forms and needs to be grieved

but your body can help you through it if you will let it.

Altered Clock Case

Arms for reaching out. Heart for slow beats forward and Lungs for remembering to breathe.

Ear for receiving comfort; Mouth for speaking your truth; Eyes for looking forward to a new path.

Bones for Strength; Spine for bending without breaking.

Brain for looking for the gifts that often come with loss.

Loss in its many forms: represented by these beautifully disintegrating vintage photographs.

This one was a labour of love.
