to everyone - hi! sorry I’ve been so absent for so long. I’ve been oscillating between too busy and not busy enough for tumblr-ing… I’m gonna try harder now; I’ve missed you! I also feel bad for not following through with those promotions I promised, so that’ll happen soon.

to those of you who have sent me your experiences: wow. thank you. they’re all profound and powerful and beautiful and real and honest and open. thank you so much for being open with a stranger on the internet in the name of art! you guys are amazing!
to everyone: if you want to help me, I’m now opening this up to experiences with tragedy/grief/sadness in general. but specific moments. especially between two or more people. sad ones, happy ones, hopeful ones, surprising ones, angry ones, anything. the original post explains this better, but I want to use them as the basis for a play about grief and the complexity of human emotions. thank you! you can send it to my ask (I obviously won’t publish it, and you can be anon) or email it to me if it’s longer (johanna (dot) maren (at) gmail (dot) com)! thank you so much!
also: I’ve edited the text of the original post to reflect this change so if you could reblog either this or that I would be so grateful! thank you so much!
