For those of any age who have suffered loss, here is a journey of brilliant color to bring you peace.
Beloved author and artist Roger Hutchison has created a picture book to guide readers through different emotions and reactions related to grieving. The gentle text and illustrations of this lushly colored picture book explore feelings of shock, tears, anger, and hope, using the powerful language and experience of color. My Favorite Color is Blue. Sometimes. is a welcome companion to people of all ages as they journey through loss and grief.
Following the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, Roger had the privilege of painting with children and adults who were touched by this tragic event. The experience affected him at a cellular level and convinced him of a vocation to serve those who grieve using his writing and art.
Read a recent guest blog post by Roger Hutchison about grief:
It has been said that we are currently in a place of perpetual trauma.
I feel it.
I feel it from my head to my heart to my toes.
I feel it in the interactions I have with those around me.
There is a weariness in my human brothers and sisters.
A palpable grief in the way their bodies move.
Shoulders and hearts burdened by so much pain and sadness.
