1. I’m reading a novel called The Lager Queen of Minnesota by J. Ryan Stradal. It includes one of most relevant analogies of what it’s like when a loved one dies. In a section where a character is grieving the loss of her husband of many years she says, ‘It reminded her of holding hands on the deck of a swaying boat, when, without warning, the other person lets you go. That moment between when your hand is empty and when you reach the railing can take years.”
