CYG – Day 16: Creative Grief
There are lots of different things that I’ve started doing since Benny died. Blogging, which started as a release for me has turned into so much more. Daily I think about several things that I could write about and I maybe get to about 25% of what’s in my head. It’s been a great way for me to process what’s in my head and try to make sense of it all. Gardening has been an amazing outlet and let’s me get my hands into the Earth and create something that can sustain my family. We’ve held two successful fundraisers in Benny’s memory and raised money for the GHF. Since the accident I’ve taken up yoga, which has been an incredible release for anxiety and stress. I haven’t been since Fletch was born and need to get back ASAP. I physically feel different from not spending my yoga time relaxing.
There are lots of things that I would like to do in the future. I would love to start a charity in Benny’s name, but I need to wait until I don’t have an infant at home. I would love to get back into painting, I used to really enjoy it when I was younger. I also think it’s something that Darcy would love to do with me. I love being able to include her in anything creative.

The Worcester Art Museum has child/adult classes and family workshops– although the child/adult might end at age 5. The family workshops are on Saturdays… I’ve thought about doing them with Lila as I find art to be a stress-reliever, and she loves drawing and crafting. I bet Darcy would love painting with you!
