In some traditions, we wear a black band for mourning.
This project was meant to be about finding a change in your personal self. For me, it was the passing of my father whom was mentally ill.
Now, as I hear stories of people passing, I gave a bracelet to a co-worker who lost someone. She in turn purchased two to give to people who lost someone. It wasn’t meant to be about mourning but about remembrance.
So I’m remembering my father who died a year ago tomorrow.
