This is a contribution to the Letter.Box.Stamp.Collect. project from Julie Lynch with her poem Buy Me the Moon or a White Pearl Balloon. This is what Julie had to say about the connection between the project and the piece:
After the death of a beloved aunt, I was thinking about Life’s opposites and how, to fully experience great joy or ecstasy, there is a need to fully experience the opposite (deep grief). This is not a new idea as it is in the same vein as the Romantic poet, John Keats believed and wrote about. There is a cyclality!!(new word) to our responses to experiences.
