Grief: A Love Story - the podcast

"Planning for death is a life-affirming act." My guest for this episode is DeAnne Joy, a fellow soldier in grief and death, and like so many of these conversations, I felt we could have gone on for days together. We covered all manner of topics, from advance directives, to mortality, to self-care, to women in crisis to the straight-up vulnerability of releasing a Book Baby to the world. This interview is exactly what I love; layers of topics covered as we meander about, with death and grief as the gateway in.

"There's a constant stream of grief in parenting." Some conversations are just always delicious and I have never not enjoyed speaking with Gillian Rowinski in the years that I have known her and we have stolen some time to connect.

Grief: A Love Story - the podcast

"We are here to fill the shoes of the dead." Erin Zimmerman is one of those humans who just creates...space. She bounds with joy, she laughs easily, and she seems to make setbacks into stepping stones as she evolves. We crossed paths a little more than a year ago, at a kick-in-the-butt, meet-lots-of-people event in Texas. It was at that event that this podcast was born, actually. I love that she is doing work in the world that matters. Her energy and light caught me immediately. I loved the story of her business and her family, and how she has honoured her own losses in the steps of her...

"Grief is what we are left with." I consider it one of the greatest blessings of my work and my life to have conversations like this one. To have in front of me inspiration, and strength and a poetic, magical way of communicating, is an endless gift.

It feels weird to let this baby out into the world. You can download a hold-in-your-hot-little-hands copy , but I wanted to give it a voice, too. And as I mention at the end of the episode, this chapter and the book are a team effort, and I wish to thank my writing coach, for her gentle and effective championing of my words, for her brilliant sound engineering, particularly in the intro and extro of the podcast, and of course for the music that we use.
