A Lesson From My Granddaughter

Living close to my son and his family means I get to watch my granddaughter Arya’s growth and development.

Full Spectrum of Feelings

I’m often asked how I can be joyful and live the life I am living when I’m doing it without my daughter’s presence in my life. I’m asked if I have gotten over her death, or if I’ve healed and accepted her death. I will never get over Leah’s death. I’ve had a 20-year [...]

Nuances of Perfectionism

When I was preparing to move from Raleigh to St. Paul in the fall of 2020, there was a lot of purging of things we no longer needed. Some of these were easy to pack in boxes and take to places that were accepting donations. Then I came across my journals. In the course [...]

Labels Are Confining

Do You Have a Daily Practice?

Throughout my life I’ve always been fascinated when someone talked about a daily practice. I imagined that their practice allowed them to be exactly the person they wanted to be, 100% of the time, especially when the person talking about to me was someone I looked up to, someone who seemed to have it [...]

The Rhythm of Time

One of the things that I often talk about is recognizing the impact that the rhythm of time has had on my grief journey. All throughout my life, I’ve always been fascinated by how time can feel different, depending on what is going on.  Maybe that’s why I was so aware of the surreal [...]
