AMANDA THE PANDA FAMILY GRIEF CENTER...asks, "What Words?"
February 6, 2014
Working with Iowa's premier family grief center, Amanda the Panda, has been amazing to say the least. Just two days ago they posted on their Facebook this..."Artist Jill Wells is going to paint Anger/Grief words along the top of our Volcano Room! What words would you like to see in there?"
This is my forth mural for Amanda the Panda and God willing not my last. The responses were strong, making connections for me that were profound. Words from families I had worked with on murals years prior, now going through a grief journey and posting words like..."why", "unfair", "aggravated".
The circle of life continues is what rang through my ever running mind. Being connected to these families once again to paint for them not only in moments of joy but in moments of unhappiness. We are all in this world, this life together and to give may be the greatest gift.
