THE GRIEF & DEATH RESOURCE PAGE IS CURRENTY UNDER CONSTRUCTION. PLEASE VISIT AGAIN SOON!
In a culture like ours, where few of us seek perfect love, grief is often overshadowed by regret. We regret things left unsaid, things left unreconciled. Now and then when i find myself forgetting to celebrate life, unmindful of the way embracing death can heighten and enhance the way I interact in the world, I take time to think about whether I would be at peace knowing that I left someone without saying what's in my heart, that I left with harsh words. I try daily to learn to leave folks as though we might never be meeting again. This practice makes us change how we talk and interact. It is a way to live consciously.
