Grief

Dear Soulseekers,

As I was planning my lessons this week, I came across an excerpt from a book that I want to share with you. This resonated with me today for some reason, and I know there are many of you who have suffered loss over this past year and maybe this will resonate with you too.

“Grief is a house

where the chairs

have forgotten how to hold us

the mirrors how to reflect us

Grief is a house that disappears

each time someone knocks at the door

or rings the bell

a house that blows into the air

at the slightest gust

that buries itself deep in the ground

while everyone is sleeping

Grief is a house where no one can protect you

where the younger sister

will grow older than the older one

where the doors

no longer let you in

or out”

Excerpt from The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
