This is The End  Katie Jameson #4

#4 of a 4 part series

There is a mysterious beauty to grief, magic that casts itself like a glue between the tragic and the hopeful. There is a change that comes with feeling every emotion possible, a change that could never have otherwise emerged. From where I stand I see the path of my change - like a silvery trail left by a snail - weaving its way over canyons of darkness, up mountains of steep terrain. From where I stand I can see the person who started the journey; she’s a different color and a different shape than me, she knows the journey has to begin but has no idea the depths it will take her. ⁣
The mysterious nature of grief is that it is never over, never completed, never put down.... and never the same. The woman I see across the canyon believes that her grief will destroy her, it will suffocate and swallow her. ⁣
It will be the end of her. ⁣
And I want to reach across the void and touch her with my hand, and tell her what I finally know to be true.⁣
Yes. This is the end of you. ⁣
And after the terror of stripping away the most familiar, the end is magic. Its a rare and beautiful thing to emerge from great despair and be forged new.
