Thank you inMagazine for the beautiful interview and article about journeying through grief. May it help someone else out there to feel a little less alone or to better understand how they might help someone they love navigate this strange landscape of loss.

“Deep grief is an extraordinarily personal journey. It’s a brutal landscape. How can the people in our lives know how to accompany us as we walk through that endlessly changing and often treacherous terrain? I’m not sure that it’s ever fully possible. To some degree, it is a solo journey, but I’m not so sure that any of us are built to walk it truly alone. Surviving the unthinkable is a process without directions or timelines. I can only say that, for me, the feeling of love and connection, despite this gaping hole of loss, has been a blessing beyond words. In the words of Ram Dass: ‘We’re all just walking each other home.’ That, I think, is the best we can ever hope to do.” ~Jessie Marianiello

I love you, my friends. I truly, truly do. I would not be surviving this without you.
I love you, Carl. Thank you for so perfectly showing up on page 34. You know it made me smile.
