This is a painfully self-indulgent exercise. I'd like to say I'm doing it to help others. I am happy that a by-product of my self-indulgence is it seems to bring solace to some who are also wrestling with grief. Mainly, I have struggled to talk about what I'm going through, gone through a few well meaning shrinks, leaned on friends. But I kept getting in the way. So, I started trying to work it out here. It's helped.

This is lovely. I don't know you, but we have a number of mutual friends on Facebook (I saw the link to this from Matthew Everett's Facebook page and read all three of your posts). My heart aches for you in your deep sadness and unspeakable loss and swells for you in your deep love and affection and joy. I can't imagine what you are going through, but your descriptions almost make it possible. I'm glad you are brave enough to say what you need to say; so many people don't articulate the harshness. And it is harsh sometimes. But it is also soft sometimes.

I wish you much love and healing and comfort in memories.
