A poem about grief. Very powerful. And very true. I need to remember this so that I can be a better friend to others experiencing grief, and so that I may understand my own if I should feel it.

First introduced to this poem of Rumi by David Whyte and then Susan Scott who, inspired by David's presentation to Vistage (then TEC) in 1999 went on to write her book: Fierce Conversation. All have inspired me in my work.

Love his poetry. Reminder to spend more time at home in nature. The forest knows where you are... | David Whyte
This poem came to me at the precise moment that I needed it!
