Declan J D'Arcy M.A.
"Those who will not slip beneath
the still surface on the well of grief
turning downward through its black water
to the place we cannot breathe
will never know the source from which we drink,
the secret water, cold and clear,
nor find in the darkness glimmering
the small round coins thrown by those who wished for something else."
“Grief is the midwife of your capacity to be immensely grateful for being born.”
- Stephen Jenkinson
