Over the past few years, in my quest for answers
to seemingly unanswerable questions about the
loss of loved ones, I have consulted with a variety
of scholars and major thinkers.
I’ve sought the counsel of learned rabbis, priests,
pastors, a lama and the elders of a Mormon Church.
I’ve spoken with teachers, psychologists, bookstore
owners, street-corner philosophers and Starbucks
malingerers. I’ve learned from common and
not-so-common people who have somehow found
meaning in the face of tragedy.
After processing all this assorted input, I have come to
formulate my own opinions about some aspects of loss.
Among them is an affirmation that, to some extent:
death is an illusion.
