Life after ....

Life is cruel so that it can be kind.
It makes sure you get hungry and have other pressing things happening around the space where you are mourning. This ensures you don't sit and grieve to the exclusion of everything else.
There are guests in the house who have come to be a part of the last rites. They have to be housed and fed.
There are helpers and servants who have to be supervised so that the normalcy of a running household is restored.
All of this makes you think about what you have to do and moves you away from the deep, heart breaking hurt that you have.
