About

Welcome to this place created for the expression of loss. My hope is that it be a place of healing for the readers and the contributors alike. Going through the loss of my mother last year and of my sister-in-love this year, I am learning about the wounds of loss. For a while I was paralyzed with it and this journal almost faded away. My goal now is to continue to revive TSJ even as I revive myself. This road is long yet it is a contradiction in that while I don't travel alone - I am alone as I travel.. We are unified by birth and death - truths from which we can't escape. Share your experiences of loss whether it is a loss of a person, favorite space, keys, book, memories. Someone else may benefit from your words. Writing them may be cathartic for you.
