A Shelter for Sadness

In this sparkling, hushed story about making spaces for less glamorous feelings, too, a boy understands and respects his sadness enough to create a place for it to peacefully exist. Visualized as a cozy haunt, decked out with flowers and glittering lights, the spot that he constructs for this often pushed-down feeling is both inviting and apart—giving audiences an opportunity to consider where sadness fits, and what it contributes, to their own lives.
