Tour art museums, libraries, bookstores, and music stores and a lot of what is created is the result of pain. Grief, a breakup or other tragedy inspires people to write amazing books, paint beautiful music, make incredible speeches.
What will come from your broken heart? The tragedy you experienced, the darkness you have endured, the addiction you have fought to find recovery, all have meaning. It has a message that you should not carry alone but share through whatever creative means you want to express it.
You can create something from your pain. Because even a life of great tragedy is still beautiful.

Dear Anne Moss,
I plan to publish your blog about denial, it’s just marijuana on Wednesday on Thursday. At the bottom it has a link to your book, to an article you wrote for Richmond Magazine, plus the webinar on Friday. I picked out a photo from your blog. To me, it made sense showing that nice picture with Charles, as our lead picture.
I will try to find your email address and send it to you.
Thank you. I see it in my email.
