after reading it i was seized by the idea that one never stops grieving, really. we just learn to cope with it every day, our own little uncomfortable whisper telling us that we won't last forever.

this list gets longer as i grow older; better not to waste any time keeping your feelings to yourself. tell the people you love that you love them now, before you won't be able to. one way or another.

This is a great piece that recognises how ambiguous grief can be, and how it can be complicated and prolonged by the mixed feelings that often accompany the loss. I'm brought sharply to mind of my own losses, those I have cared deeply about and equally, those people I have lost whose passing has barely registered and I rarely even consider after the passage of time. Loss isn't always partnered by grief, and that reminds us how mundane and everyday a thing death can be, with no great exit fanfare to herald our passing.

It's interesting that the expected reaction to death is abject grief but a lot of the time it's a lot more nuanced than that - all your prejudices, the best and worst parts of your relationship with the deceased can be highlighted in the way you respond to them being gone. Funny that you point out that this reminds you how mundane death can be - I agree with you there because I see it a lot in my line of work, but that doesn't mean each life doesn't have its own intrinsic value.
