    Good thoughts here for sure…and lots of practice over time will hopefully make even the practice easier.

    I understand this today. Today I am sitting in paradise, staring at the turquoise Caribbean Sea and wrestling demons I haven’t thought about in many months. A wound ripped open in a conversation last evening that has left me dull, listless and on the verge of tears. I think you are right about perfection in the cycle. I think that is the best we can hope for.

    I once knew a woman whose son had been abducted and was still missing 20 years later. She had, as she put it, perfected grief. She mourned him over and over again, with every anniversary or new lead in the case or phone call from the FBI. She said the pain never lessened — not even a little bit — but she became incredibly nimble at moving through it. I suppose that, in itself, is some form of “healed.”

    Waves. Grief always comes in waves and to expect for sadness to diminish completely is to expect that the ocean would uncouple itself from the wave. Ribe it and it becomes a part of your beauty – imperfect vicious beauty.
