You will find solace in Andrew Garfield’s perspectives on grief and loss.


Let us state the obvious: grief stinks.

No one is preparing you for the way it sneaks up on you, crashing like a tidal wave. One minute you just mind your own business, then the next you suddenly drown, calling for a rescue team.

But maybe there is a more uplifting way of looking at it. Maybe grief itself is the liferaft that keeps us afloat as we find ways to honor ourselves. This is the perspective Andrew Garfield learned to kiss following the death of his mother lynn.

“By the way, I love talking about her, so if I cry it’s just a beautiful thing,” he shared in the Nov. 22 episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “It’s all the unspoken love, the heartache that will stay with us until we move on because we never have enough time with each other, no matter if someone lives up to it. at 60, 15 or 99. So I hope that grief stays with me because it’s all the unexpressed love that I couldn’t tell her. And I told her every day. We have her. everyone said every day that she was the best of us.
