Welcome to The Scarlet Heart. This blog has been created as a step in my healing journey. After participating in Carly Marie’s ‘Capture Your Grief’ project in October 2016, I began to truly appreciate the benefits of creative healing. Daily writing and photography prompts had me engaging in my grief in a way that I had not previously dared to attempt. The creative expression of my thoughts and feelings, the storytelling approach to documenting and sharing our experience, and the heartfelt responses of those who bravely followed along all left me wanting more. So after just enough requests for more, the perfect amount of encouragement, and my inability to sit still, here is my blog. I hope your reading helps to heal the soul, in the same way that my writing helps to heal mine.
