take care of yourself (i'd rather you didn't)

sophie calle's 2007 conceptual piece entitled take care of yourself is a jilted response to a dear john letter she had received via email from her former lover. the interpretations of this letter by 107 different professional women makes this a vulnerable yet defining feminist piece. how can we really render comprehension of heartbreak? it's sometimes only okay to laugh, and that's all you can do when he leaves you.
