Sample text

Everyone knows that the “first holidays” after a loved one dies are difficult, and there’s a big sigh of relief come January. But the second year can be even harder. High-maintenance relatives who were on good behavior the first year probably won’t be the second time around, and you may also have let down your guard too much, assuming the “sophomore” year will be easier. Sophomores, as anyone who has been to college knows, think they know it all. Watch out for year two. Other anvils come at night.

Those who now find themselves in this “other place”—those who now live in the land where anvils fall—can recognize their fellow citizens. Joan Didion says: People who have recently lost someone have a certain look, recognizable maybe to those who have seen that look on their own faces. I have noticed it on my face and I notice it on others. She describes “that look” as similar to someone leaving the eye doctor’s office after having their pupils dilated, or someone who has to wear glasses walking around without them.

If you’re talking about the belongings of a loved one who has died, phrases like “Give it away,” “Throw it away,” “Sell it,” “Give it to the poor,” “Let whoever wants it take it,” make it sound like you’re scattering them to the winds. But the objects of a life must eventually be relinquished. Still, some people simply cannot or will not part with a loved one’s things. They hold on to them in a way that stops being about a loved one’s stuff and becomes about a need to hold on to it. The belongings of the dead can easily get mixed up with the emotional baggage of the living.
