GRIEF ARTICLE - INDIEOMA

Indieoma this week is looking at grief and mourning. I have an article called 'Mourning Your Own' there, about grief after my sister's death and also after miscarriage.

You can read and comment here.

Barbara Smith has three wonderful poems here.

Hello Nuala, just read your grief piece and thought it was honest and so sad. It must have been very tough for you to write.

Cheers, N. I've read your piece - 'twas me that commented, but forgot to sign in first - duh!

It's an honest, moving piece that made me well up Nuala. I think we can all learn from those who have mourned if we listen carefully enough.

Thanks Tania, Annamay, PJ and Barbara,
Tbh, it wasn't hard to write except in the 'Do I really want to be this honest?' sense And, I do.

I am still at Cúirt, residenting away, so I am pressed for time. Thanks a million for reading the piece!

Hi Nuala,

I'm writing from the library as I cannot access Blogger from my laptop (virus, I think)
This piece really touched me, I salute your honesty and bravery. And am really sorry.
