Grief is weight - something you bear, aheaviness you learn to carry. Grief is the weight of never.
- Ron Marasco -
Grief is something none of uscan escape yet the topic is rarely discussed because there is no one way we allexperience it. Knowing how difficult the subject is
, on the faculty of Loyola Marymount University, began teaching a course on grief andhis book, Grief, grew out ofhis lectures and research.
Due to nature of the topicmany grieving people feel alone in their pain and there exist no magic pillsfor relief and even time, although it has an effect, does not eliminate grief,at best it just may put it in perspective after a while.
AsRon states: Grief is what happens when all the drama ends Deathis the dramatic event, grief the harder slog.
Awhile back I had a moving conversation with Ron about the topic and it provedto provide solace for many of my viewers. I now want to share it with all withthe hope that it may comfort those in grief, those who know someone in grief,and eventually all of us, if we haven't already will experience grief.
Plus, airing this week onmost of our PBS stations is my conversation with the beautiful actress Victoria Tennant about her gorgeous photo/biography Irina Baronova. Irina is Victoria's mom and the woman who brought ballet to America.
Enjoy them both and have a great week,
