The territory of loss is vast: loss of people we love; loss of country, culture and identity; loss of love, of innocence, of a way of life; loss of ecosystems and species; loss of bodily capacity or integrity; loss brought about by migration and other transitions; losing one’s head, one’s job, one’s beliefs … the possibilities are multiple.
