A recent loss

I was all geared up to announce my pregnancy two weeks ago, but we came home from the ultrasound in tears instead. I do want to share what I ended up writing. I'd post it here, but since I don't post as often on Biracial Mamabelle, I don't want it to be lurking on the home page for so long.

You can read it here: I'm Not Going to whisper About Miscarriage, and I'll share here also, the quick painting I did for a visual of how I was feeling (below).

My quick attempt at a visualization. The sky (soul) holds the rage while the sea (physical body) peacefully accepts the death and recovers quickly. The figure stands still and releases the anger in screams.

I'm so sorry about your loss. My heart aches for you and your family. I love the painting and how you channelled such a painful time into such a powerful painting.

Thank you! I hope to complete another one in the future that will be something I could enjoy looking at. This one was more for the exercise, so to speak.

Thank you, Michelle, I sure hope so! I feel more positive as time passes.
