Mourning and Making: Creativity in a Time of Lament


How do we deal with the losses of everyday life during quarantine?  Take a page out of Carrie Fischer’s book and take your broken heart and turn it into art.

In this episode of Beautiful Things, I explore ways to mourn and grieve what we’ve lost by making things. Click on the link below to listen.

Beautiful Things: Making and Mourning; creativity in a time of lament

You might have jumped on the bandwagon of breadmaking like I have (holla challah!), or making furniture (I’m looking at you Keegan Michael Key), or making videos of yourself in a prom dress with your family.

Below are a couple links to some of the things I talk about in this episode:

  1. Create a Thankful Tree

2. Make a Quarantine “Valentines” Box

3. Throw Stuff (and name your emotions)
