This came to my attention via an online site dedicated to thought provoking quotations and the history behind them.  The site sends an e-mail every week...my husband found it interesting and turned me and many of his students into subscribers.  Yesterday the theme was grief and the C. S. Lewis quotation, which I had read before, struck me anew.  I do feel such fear now, about so many things, strangely including some quite trivial.  Even writing this down makes my heart pound a bit, very odd.

Another quotation from the same e-mail came from long ago British prime minister Benjamin Disraeli, who wrote that ‘the indulgence of grief is the blunder of a lifetime.’  That somehow resonates with me, though not in the same visceral way that the C. S. Lewis quotation does.
