Part of every misery is, so to speak, the miserys shadow or reflection: the fact that you dont merely suffer but have to keep on thinking about the fact that you suffer. I not only live each endless day in grief, but live each day thinking about living each day in grief.
By: C. S. Lewis
I think everyone understands grief, the journey it takes us on, whether its the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, a disappointment. Some people dont deal with it, the power of it. Some do. Some feel the weight of it and it informs their choices. Ive had to open up to grief in different contexts.

To mourn is to wonder at the strangeness that grief is not written all over your face in bruised hieroglyphics. And its also to feel, quite powerfully, that youre not allowed to descend into the deepest fathom of your grief - that to do so would be taboo somehow.

Im part of the tribe who have said goodbye to one parent and are feeling a sense of responsibility for the one who remains - in my case, my mother. How do I make her time smoother, happier? How do I try to ease her, a widow, away from the dark well of grief without dishonoring the necessity of that grief?
