"Tonight a friend got scared by the lack of control that characterizes loss.
Spoke of 'managing our grief' and 'getting over grief.'
Curiously we never speak of 'managing our joy' or 'getting over our happiness.'
Grief is an underground stream running through our life.
It surfaces appropriately in response to separation.
Growth requires releasing the known to make room for the unknown.
Grief lubricates the transition."
