…And all the sorrow in this world.

Unfortunately I have some sad news to report.  Someone who participated in the Gift Prolific has passed on.  It seems that Amber Marie Bently was found dead in an apartment in Nevada.  I am very sorry to read this report.  I am sure the art community in San Francisco as well as the Burning Man Community will miss this woman.  I remember that she really liked my project.  She was sweet and vibrant….and gave me a huge hug.  My deepest condolences to all of her family and friends.

    yes, this is really upsetting to me, and so sad. Poor Amber. I really liked her, and I know she struggled with mental health issues, serious ones. Her husband had recently left her and I’d guess she was quite depressed. it”s so sad that no one looked for her…..

    a sad day indeed.

    love, Bee

      Hey Lady Bee,

      Yeah I agree with you. She was so sweet to talk to. I remember her telling me that she also struggled with depression issues. But the only other thing I really remember was her super hug. The thing that makes me feel for her in her story is the isolation she was facing….and it is incredibly sad that she was out of touch for so long. Take care. Tell everyone you care about THAT you care about them.
