Grief, Loss, Coping
Lessons of Loss consists of four poems and four personal essays, each dealing with a profound loss in my life. I am forever in pursuit of the mastery of hope, and writing serves as a critical vehicle in moving me through grief towards that beacon of hope. In the most difficult times, I seek comfort from the writings of those who have endured loss with a sense of humility and grace. To express my gratitude to those who have provided me with comfort and direction, I strive to master Lessons of Loss so that someday I might provide some flicker of hope to those in search of solace.
