Thanks so much, Margo Fowkes, for asking if I’d ever written an essay about writing as healing. (I’d written bits and pieces here and there, but not an extensive piece.) I offered to write one for you, and you—creator of the marvelous Salt Water website for those in grief—have published it.
I’m deeply grateful for that, and for Salt Water, where anyone who wants to write about loss and grief can submit work. You’ve done exactly what I talk about here—turning grief into art—beautifully and with great compassion for yourself and others. What a gift!
