I write about my life and life itself seen through my eyes for who can write through the experiences of others if not their own?

A Moment to grieve.

A day, a week, a year, must be allotted to grieve. It is a process that cannot be bypassed, overlooked nor skipped.

It must be allowed on its own time, when it happens. Grieving doesn’t happen right away. It takes a while to fight its way through the maze of feelings that a loss brings to the surface.  Grieving is not as easy as anger, kick a few doors, curse a few obscenities, punch a wall a few times and let out some steam.

Grieving is different, not as explosive, but felt more deeply.  Grieving is the deep awakening of the deepest part of ourselves realizing something is gone and when that whirlwind of emotions is unleashed there is no stopping to the torrent of feelings.  It cannot be stopped. It is like forcing a cork back into a champagne bottle.

Let it run its course.  It will be done eventually. 

A loss deserves to be grieved. I have grieved all my loses, have you?
