I finally finished this one! When I started, I had the idea of using balloons to symbolize letting go of. I originally intended to represent how we need to let go of the things that no longer serve us or that are negative in our lives in order to open up a space for growth and goodness. As my grandpa grew sicker over these past few weeks, it was clear that the idea of letting go took on a new meaning for me.
So as I enter into this time in my life when I am forced to let go of him, I am gentle with myself, knowing there is no right or wrong way to let go.
