A meditation on the stages of grief documents the period after the wrenching death of the author's adult daughter and describes a kayak journey he took years later that metaphorically represented his journey of loss and healing.

HARPERCOLL

“There is indeed life after death, and Rosenblatt proves that without a doubt.”
USA Today

From Roger Rosenblatt, the bestselling author of Making Toast and Unless It Moves the Human Heart, comes a poignant meditation on the nature of grief, the passages through it, the solace of solitude, and the healing power of love. Rosenblatt’s Kayak Morning is a classic in the making, akin to A Grief Observed by C. S. Lewis—a coming to terms with tragic, senseless loss that offers readers an unsentimental and deeply moving account of the possibility of true redemption. A profoundly beautiful and intimate gift from an exceptional writer, Kayak Morning is Roger Rosenblatt writing bravely and unforgettably from the heart.

I sometimes feel that death is contagious, that I could pollute others with my sorrow. It is a lot to ask of people to add your despair to their own. Because my friends love me, they understand and forgive my deposed state of mind. I recognize the kindness in their eyes. When they suffered deaths in the family, I saw the gauze over their faces. Now they see mine.

The advantage of being an amateur in most things, including kayaking, is that all any enterprise requires is love. Love hides in the word _amateur_.

More or less just ramblings of him on a creek/river/lake.
No real flow, just talks about writers, people he knows and random thoughts about life.
Feel sad for the guy.
I made it through about half the book before stopping.
