Sometimes the mere thought can set off the feeling. Sadness…..something lost or maybe not attained.  Sadness can bring loneliness, a need to be with others.  It can be difficult to explain, it takes time to navigate through.  It may leave us or it may deepen into something darker, more tenacious.

Sadness can be about so many things from places to people, from thoughts to actions.
