Every Wednesday

Every other Wednesday, I will post a reflection on the entire 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 those who have never grieved understand the trauma that death brings.

Talking To the Trees

Recently I heard that a friend had received bad news about cancer and I thought, “I’ll go out and talk to the trees.”

Bear with me a moment, my serious, organized-religion friends.

I used to light candles, think of those who needed support, and prayed. I still do, but talking to the trees seemed to be the right thing to do here.

    1. When I was young, I would climb high into the trees and sit for hours feeling at home. My love for trees continues.
