A problem with no solution, a beautiful column by Michael Kelly's mom.
"Death was quick, but grief, I find, keeps going on and on and on and it affects me in strange ways.
I feel no denial. No anger. No bargaining. No depression. And this makes me wonder if I'll ever get to peace and acceptance. These five classic stages of grief, cited so authoritatively by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, aren't working for me."
If I knew Michael Kelly's mom, I would give her Tear Soup because it doesn't have lists and stages and it knows that there is no solution. People don't solve grief; we do grief and with grace sometimes are transformed.
