WEverb - Lose


2012 and 2011 were characterized by loss for me. After my father-in-law's unexpected passing last year, the losses continued. I've lost dreams, hopes, dignity, sleep, etc. It's become tiresome to be the person who is grieving, processing and circling around on the merry-go-round of loss. I still can't write about it elegantly or deeply. I use other people's words or cliches.   I wish my response to this prompt involved weight or maybe a broken keepsake.  Maybe for WEverb13?

  1. Melinda,

    I'm sorry to hear about this. This month, personally, has been a very tough one for me (Actually I think it started with Hurricane Sandy and just continues...) and I find myself feeling very lonely and not knowing what to do with it.

    I'm hoping 2013 will bring a different answer to this question for you as well. Sending support from beyond! (Or actually just New York but we can pretend I'm hanging out in space too. haha)

  2. i'm sorry about the losses and grief you have experienced. i know that as the strong, optimistic person that you are, that you handle these with with grace and perspective, but it still doesn't make the losses any easier.
