Walking with Others
Guest Posts on Grief
It’s a rainy morning, there are three deer resting under the tree on my front yard, and my heart is aching. Some days the air holds so much heaviness it is tangible. And yet somehow we carry on, don’t we, in spite of moving through so much.
At the end of July, I invited others to reach out to me and share their stories of loss and grief. I am deeply honored by the trust of all who have reached out to share, and moved by our collective stories of loss.
In August I started off by sharing a poem that my late sister River wrote, about her grief when we lost the acreage we grew up on.
I also shared a piece by Kelley Murphy of Spirit Seeds who wrote about being stopped in her tracks by memories of her late father.
Finally I shared a love letter to a lost loved one by Parker Broadhead.
Thank you again, all of you who have trusted me with your stories. And thank you dear readers for holding space for those of us walking through grief.
Each month I will continue to share 2-4 stories from others with my readers. If you would like to share your own story of grief, please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
