I am thankful to have an art therapist to help me during this difficult time. It's amazing how an emotion can be defined, explained and examined through pictures that are hardly conjured in my head and somehow present themselves by shapes and colors through paint onto the paper. The images help hold the space for feelings, for story, for planning the next move. Most helpfully, it anchors me to the feeling so I can learn from it, not run from it. It works like magic, like I've designed my own balm for the wound. It is a wonder filled practice.
