“Here is one of the worst things about having someone you love die: It happens again every single morning.”
Anna Quindlen, Every Last One
“Don't say mourning. It's too psychoanalytic. I'm not mourning. I'm suffering.”
Roland Barthes, Mourning Diary
“I felt like a mouse running through one of those cardboard mazes. I didn't have to think about anything I did. My body just...went.

Alicia K. Leppert, Emerald City
