the yin and yang of loss
"As a Buddhist 'mother' of two 'children,' I was shocked to receive the news of their death both times. How could they have passed away before me? How could they have gone when they were at the prime of their life? Distraught, I could not let a piece of me die with them. Nor could I let a piece of them die in me."
THE YIN AND YANG OF LOSS is a successor's tribute to two people, unique to their bonds of friendship and life circumstances. This eponymous work succeeds an anthologized piece that first debuted in Red Skirt, Blue Jeans: True Stories from the Berkeley Public Library Memoir Writers and includes the following:
* images/illustrations/photographs to accompany the text
* foot, hand and ear treatment for leisure and reflection
* questions for discussion and journaling
