does it ever go away?
"at some point, it becomes bearable. it turns into something that you can crawl out from under and carry around like a brick in your pocket. and you even forget it for a while. but then you reach in for whatever reason and - there it is. oh right, that. which could be awful - not all the time. it's not that you'd like it exactly, but it's what you've got. so, you carry it around. and it doesn't go away. which is ... fine, actually."
on grief. having gone through a tough time earlier this year, the idea of a parallel universe is a bit comforting. memories, for the most part, help propel us forward.
