I think everyone understands grief, the journey it takes us on, whether it's the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, a disappointment. Some people don't deal with it, the power of it. Some do. Some feel the weight of it and it informs their choices. I've had to open up to grief in different contexts.
Tori Amos on Grief
I've written about my love for Tori Amos's music and how it's helped me survive the death of my father. I intend to write more about Amos in the future, especially how she copes with grief and loss on the album The Beekeeper, but right now I want to share a quote from an interview Amos recently gave to The Guardian. Her first musical, The Light Princess, is set to premiere later this month, and the story explores the subject of grief.
