anatomy of grief

The Year of Magical Thinking

An adaptation of Joan Didion’s touching memoir, The Year of Magical Thinking, will open on Broadway March 29th starring Vanessa Redgrave for a limited twenty-four-week run.

That I was only beginning the process of mourning did not occur to me. Until now, I had only been able to grieve, not mourn. Grief was passive. Grief happened. Mourning, the act of dealing with grief, required attention.  ~Joan Didion
