Day 60: Pause. Get Quiet. Get Still. Drink a Paloma. Turn Inward. Shift.

I am living what I have witnessed so often—the increased rawness of grief, sometimes beginning a couple months after the loss. It’s the moment when people begin to stop asking about it/you/the person who died as much. And it is also the moment (for me) when it no longer feels healing to speak of the experience out loud, as much. I feel more protective of my grief—not because it needs to be closeted—more because it seems to need more quiet.

I will honor that. Because I know grief, in and of itself, is wise. Brutal. Yet wise.

I will be taking some time off of the specific topic of “how does a grief therapist grieve?” and return to my usual meanderings on grief. Thanks so much for being here with me.

Welcome to my second, 100-day project. I hope to provide a daily offering on something grief-related. I am a grief therapist and educator working with people in Oregon, Washington, DC, Maryland, and Maine. This feed is in honor of each person who has trusted me with their stories and wisdom during their grief journey. I hope that others may benefit from simple and straightforward talk about a topic that can be difficult.
