LOSS

Lately I have been thinking a lot about loss, and what loss means to me. I have lost friends that I thought would be friends forever, and gained some knowledge about people and the way they tend to think. The shallowness of everyday contact still shocks me. Perhaps loss has shaped my identity, defined the person that I am today. Or in the words of the Arab poet Adonis: ‘loss saves us’.
