Every Wednesday

Every Wednesday, I will post something about grief. Sometimes it will be a reflection on an aspect of grief’s landscape. Now and then I will share from my own journey of grief, because in the sharing of our stories we find strength and build a community of people that support one another.

Fly Away

Journal entry 6

I want to fly away to a land where no one knows me.  

I want to walk down the rocky shoreline of an ocean where the tide pools can distract me with starfish and other creatures.  

I want to sit in the forest and silent until I feel something again.

I want to hike the Pacific Coast Trail through the mountains for months and let the sun warm my bones that have been cold since Evelyn’s death.  

I want to be among people who are grieving. We would not need to say anything. Just sitting with them, I would know that I wasn’t alone.
