WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER…a phrase seen and uttered all too often in response to a pandemic year that tried and tested much of our resolve, patience, trust, and hopes to the point of near breakdown. In Frances Itani’s The Company We Keep, she suggests that even in the singularly private state and process of grief, we are all still in it together. Within the confines of a casually organized, weekly ‘grief discussion’ group at a local Coffee Shop, 6 strangers discover immediately how together they truly are in their own grief journeys. Itani takes us around the corner, and all over the globe…back in time and moving forward. She tangents us off in many directions entering six lives, six journeys, six struggles to survive and even thrive with the heaviness that their losses weigh on them.
More to come.
