“Grieving without a mystical connection can deprive us of the great lessons pain can offer. If we grieve only within the confines of our three-dimensional understanding of human experience, we risk missing out on true spiritual healing.” ~Terri Daniel, MA, CT
Welcome. I’m Anna Marie January, and as you’ve probably surmised, this is not a blog about art. Maybe it’s a blog about the art of life and death.
In 2015, my beloved, charismatic, and troubled 22 year old son Nick died by suicide. As you can imagine this has changed my life, and the lives of all of those who loved and knew him to varying degrees. I now find myself on a journey. It’s one not only of grief and despair, though of course I have my days, but it has become a journey of exploration, discovery and love. I’m sharing some of that here. Thank you for joining me. If this is your first time visiting, I suggest you begin with the link below: Moments of Grace: Signs and Synchronicities (#1 The Gas Station), for context.
