The Ceremonies of Grief

(4:35)

Dr. Manning tells stories of ceremonies of grief that speak when words fail, allowing grief to happen when words are too difficult.

“To weep is to make less the depth of grief.”
William Shakespeare
“Here is one of the worst things about having someone you love die: It happens again every single morning.”
Anna Quindlen, Every Last One
When someone you love dies, you get a big bowl of sadness put down in front of you, steaming hot. You can start eating now, or you can let it cool and eat it bit by bit later on. Either way, you end up eating the whole thing. There's really no way around it.”
Ralph Fletcher, Fig Pudding
