The Kübler-Ross stages of grief are fairly well known, although they are more guidelines than rules. I did my best to explore them through Blake. They are:
denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance
Yesterday, of course, Blake was in denial. Today it would be anger.
To every side of drama, there’s another side of equally believable nature.
This was an interesting week to write, dealing with grief of a lost parent without getting too maudlin. Making it both sensitive and funny. A challenge, but I really wanted to do it.
If you’re going to do a weird surreal week, why hold back?!
Oh, and that’s Hamlet talking of Yorick. “I knew him, Horatio; a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy; he hath borne me on his back a thousand times.”
