The Void

Montina Hussey

My grandfather died at the age of 50. He smoked and drank heavily all of his life, and he was abusive to the ones he loved. Our bloodline also contains the blood and life force of the Ojibwa tribe, found in both my parent's lineage. We can easily hold the pain of our ancestors not understanding that it isn’t our pain to hold, sometimes it has to filter through us in order to be cleared. In my grandfather's case, this involved an unconscious suicide.
