Prompt #10: Loss
Loss is a complicated, sometimes all encompassing, experience that comes with waves of pain, confusion, anger, and denial. Sometimes it’s a temporary loss, and other times it’s something more permanent. Whatever the case, loss is something that can take over and impact our day-to-day lives. When is a time that you’ve lost someone or something? Do you still think about that today? Have your perceptions about longevity changed?
