As I Live and Grieve

As I Live and Grieve


It’s time for grief to come out of the basement, or wherever we have stuffed it to avoid talking about it. When you suffer a loss you need support, comfort, and a safe place to heal. What you are experiencing is painful but normal, unique but similar, surreal but very, very real. As grief advocates we understand and want to provide support, knowledge and comfort as you continue to live and grieve. Host, Kathy Gleason; Producer, Stephanie Kendrick.

Summary:Words are important and sometimes can settle your emotions. Likewise, they can add to the intensity. However, words don’t always come easily for us. Poetry can speak for us, mirroring our thoughts and helping us to acknowledge our emotions. Listen in as Kara Bowman talks about her poems and treats us with a few readings.
