A blog about writing and all things story…
|Christmas at the Empress|
When I’m sad I write a letter to my loved ones communicating my love for them, that I miss them and that they’re still here in my heart, in my celebrations and in my spirit. Then I take that letter and have a small ceremony of my own creation; I tear the letter into small pieces, place it on a large leaf, settle it on the lake and light the letter on fire. In folklore those flames carry your thoughts to your loved ones. This might seem crazy to you, and that’s fine, I never mind being the crazy one – it’s my ceremony; create one that works for you. The point is to honor the sadness and then create a way to lift the paralyzing burden of that sadness. Fashion one that’s special and unique to you and your life.
