Gloomy Days (Trübe Tage)

Anna Neumann | Germany

Maja had been feeling unwell for a while – she seems to have a Sadness in her stomach. When she cried it out, she thinks she finally got rid of the unpleasant feeling. But it's not so easily chased away.

How do we deal with sadness? Thats a question, that touches the lives of children and adults over and over again. In my story, I try to gently and carefully approach the unwelcome visitor, that might just long for some attention and comfort.
