This short film introduces the spirit that inhabits the bench - what we might find when we are called to face, find meaning in, and be transformed by our grief.
"she reminds you that
the gift of grief is a great mystery
when we face it
when we allow ourselves to
wrestle with it
when we allow grief to flow
it can release us to know
the rhythms of life
where strength and courage
can be found"
“The flowing composition of life, color, shade and illumination, together with a gently yet deeply affecting poetic text - that suggests but does not define, encourages but does not explain - these qualities I found uniquely and surprisingly illuminating in those areas of grief which I realize I had thought were mine alone and hidden from the world, yet which turn out to be a universal
feature of what it is to be human."
