Rabbit Hole

My friend Leslie pointed me to this trailer for a film. I think it is the most perfect representation of grief for a child that I have ever seen. This is exactly how I feel. This is exactly my life. The expression on her face when people talk of angels, the shot of her doing the washing and in the car – this is how it is.

Leslie has typed a quote from the original play. There is some hope in it, some hope that past experience has taught me I can expect. It is the equivalent of the “one day at suppertime” post at Glow.

It’s because my life is now exactly.. EXACTLY… like this clip, that I make the choices and decisions that I now make.

    The scene when the actress looked at the painting on the fridge was excruciating to witness. Unbearable. Sending you heart felt best wishes during this difficult time.

    I think it spoke to each of us in this community. I saw it on a few blogs and was literally shocked- first at how much it paralleled my own feelings, and 2- that someone actually made a film about child loss that focuses on the subject with sensitivity and awareness as opposed to making it into science fiction. The writer and director deserve a huge hand at this accomplishment….
