Understanding Grief


The experience of loss alters the map of the world imprinted on our brain, disrupting patterns and expectations as it struggles to form new ones. Grief is a kind of longing, not only for what has been lost but for the innocent assumption that our familiar world will remain with us always. We speak of resilience and healing, but in Grief is for People, author Sloane Crosley reminds us that lament and regret are also companions. The message, writes a NY Times book reviewer: “Our memories are what we have left, and there’s no amount of remembering that will give us back what we seek.”
