For Natascha

Creativity in grief, has always been a way of dealing with pain and loss.
5 unrelated things happened for this simple little visual poem to come alive.
1.I shot my bedroom window in the wind on my iphone…
2. I wrote the poem, the night of Nat’s passing… (which you saw here)
3.I composed a simple melody on the piano…
4.I was given a “Mirror room” by Sylvira Halcyon in Second LIfe
and so  I danced in front of it and filmed it.
5.I recorded the poem…
I hope you find it worthy to put it all together….For Natascha.

    Wow, my dear Karima…this video took my breath away! I was captivated from the start and your gentle voice guided me into a journey with emotion. The feelings and love throughout this whole piece are so palpable. I know this poem is incredibly special but that last line “The sky always called to you” takes special to a whole new level. Amazingly done, my dear friend. Keep expressing, sharing and creating – Nat is so proud and grateful to have a friend like you 🖤🤗

    • Oh Ace, your words touch me so…..Thank you for saying that..I feel proud and very grateful, to have had the opportunity to know her and work with her and call her my friend..
      I am so glad this little strange piece, that almost came together on its own,from so many small “outbursts” of unrelated creativity.. could speak to a time, when I am feeling very wordless:( In the end I need to always trust my muse and get it out..even if there is some hesitancy over whether it will be understood or accepted.. Big hugs wise poet friend..Your support has meant so much to me, in these days❤️🤗🙏

    You are the epitome of creativity, even in grief. I’m proud of you, Karima, and so would be the lovely Nat. It was such a moving tribute to her that a close friend like you only can do, straight from the bottom of your heart. Your friendship with Nat and love for her is immortal. Stay happy and blessed, my friend 🙏💖😊

    • Oh Kaushal..thank you…these words brought me tears, but the good kind of tears,” I’m proud of you, Karima, and so would be the lovely Nat.” and yes, you are so correct, my perceptive friend, this little hybrid creation was born in the very depths of my broken heart.. It helps, you get it out this way..I know you know, you are a creative soul too. Thank you for this beautful comment full of compassion and warmth. Be blessed too and stay safe…always🙏❤️🤗
