A lovely collection of poems by Andrena Yeats ( a freind of mine). As the press realse from Macmillan says:
"When I first met Andrena she was dealing with her grief in a positive and creative way by composing a series of poems. I was struck by how honest they were, and how they progressed in stages through all aspects of human emotion.
Her vision is that her collection, Night Swallowtails, and the process of its creation will resonate with others going through similar circumstances and help them as it has her.
We are deeply grateful to Andrena for choosing us as one of the charities to benefit from ...

The purpose of this booklet is to detail recommendations of good practices in relation to maternal grief and bereavement in search of establishing a dialogue about the loss, breaking the taboo and the silence about grief.The objective is also to help all the mothers that go through this tragedy to have access to information on the course of the grieving process in a practical and easy-to-understand way, which will help them to become more aware of their needs and their feelings, stimulating an improvement in the quality of life after the loss and thus preventing complications associated with mourning. We also intend to emphasize the importance of social and family ties in the process, awakening empathy and helping them to better understand the needs of these mothers so that they can succeed in getting the new reality adapted.
My family loved me very much ,
and taught me well to share,
And I am able yet to give,
though I am not there,
Mourn me not my family;
my spirits still in you,
The lesson that you taught so well
gives work I love to do
I hope that you find comfort in my memory
The work I do helps someone to live –
My greatest legacy.

Judith Voirst provides excellent guidance regarding the view of death as an exception to living and rather offers the view that death is yet another experience which must be sustained by life. Voirst offers the perspective that we suffer losses daily - that loss is not an exception to life but very much part of living.
One of the most important psychological studies of the late twentieth century, On Death and Dying grew out of Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross's famous interdisciplinary seminar on death, life, and transition. In this remarkable book, Dr. Kübler-Ross first explored the now-famous five stages of death: denial and isolation, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.

"It is the impermanence of life that gives us perspective. As we come in contact with life's precarious nature, we also come to appreciate its preciousness. Then we don't wan to wast a minute... Death is a good companion on the road to living well and dying without regrets."
