For as long as I can remember, I have experienced grief in what some might consider an unusual manner. In times of great loss, I feel, ironically, most alive. I assume the pain I experience is similar to others, however, the manner in which my body responds is surprisingly peaceful. While recently perusing through my many collections of photos, I came across these two images that capture the same emotion for me. This is my vision of what grief can be… beautiful, deeply sad and peaceful.
