Walking at the water's edge of the beach with gently lapping waves....suddenly a big wave comes in and washes you out, you are wet, surprised and unbalanced for a moment. It was all unexpected and yet part of the rhythm of waves, the rhythm of life. Just like grief. Things seem 'normal'. Life is toing and froing as it does and then suddenly out of the blue the sadness and loss hits you - wet, strong, unsettling. (If it is a really big wave it can knock you over) It is a natural process and we know that grief is a part of life. That does not make it easy.


The rhythm of life..

The ocean is unpredictable.

“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science.”
