Oh my. I moved from your words on my piece, to your words here. You do know grief too well. The "stuck in throat." Jaws aching. The breathing. May the universe wrap you up and hold you as you go along through your days and nights. Thank you so much for writing. Thank you.

Alison Acheson’s latest book is a memoir of caregiving, Dance Me to the End: Ten Months and Ten Days With ALS. She teaches writing in an MFA program.
