Recorded in this book are images taken in the last year of my Mother’s life, in her tenth year living with Ovarian Cancer.
With the death of my Mother, I entered a period of bereavement, common, even logical to our human condition, but unique to myself. I have never known a more crippling isolation. I have discovered that I am not isolated in my bereavement, nor in my story. We are united in our experiences in a highly transformative way. Your stories, and poems, and images, have the power to heal. When we share, we transform Grief, into Good Grief.
This book is an invitation to you, to first witness the experience of my Mother’s death through my eyes, then to share your experiences. This book, Good Grief, Volume One, is Your Invitation. The second published book, Good Grief, Volume Two, will feature a selection of your responses. I hope these images enrich your life, and encourage you to respond with the story of your experience.
