Every Wednesday

Every other Wednesday, I will post a reflection on the landscape of grief. This blog isn't just for widowers. It's for everyone who grieves. I want to encourage people to share their stories and compassion with each other, build up a community of support, and help everyone understand the trauma that death brings.

What is the purpose of grief?

In practical terms, grief moves us from dwelling with death to where we embrace the wonder of life again.
