Musoro

     

Grief, desperation, stillness, movement, colour, language without words, interpretation, renegotiation of body, of mind, spirit, loss, discomfort, clarity, removing weight from places, adding it somewhere else. Redistribution of thought. Folding.

 

Musoro – A conspicuous external covering or prominence on the head

 

Working through grief is a desperate struggle that requires stillness, movement. Comfort found in colour gradients, language lost for words. Interpretation and renegotiation of body, of mind, spirit. Loss is a discomforting space void of clarity. Removing weight from places and adding it somewhere else. The redistribution of thought. Folding inwards. Bleeding out.
