We had another lively and interesting gathering, 10 of us altogether. Our discussion ranged from the philosphical, beliefs about the afterlife: did we meet our loved ones, or is there nothing?

Despair touches me every day. One reason our society is able to persist in its delusion that the suffering it creates is acceptable is that we don't allow the experience of grief, especially in the public realm. Grief needs to be held in community. ~ Charles Eisenstein
