Self Care for Those Who Grieve, with Paula Becker
Show Notes

A critical aspect of your grief journey is self-care. In your despair and exhaustion we often overlook the simpler items and sometimes sacrifice our own well-being. We may turn to books only to be overwhelmed with the volume of words, thoughts and number of pages. Paula Becker is our guest today and has written just the book you, and everyone who has suffered a loss, needs to read.

Episode Notes:
A Little Book of Self-Care for Those Who Grieve is just over 100 pages, with some pages containing only one word and other pages a watercolor style illustration (Rebekah Nichols, Illustrator).  The book may be read one page each day, allowing time to absorb, reflect and process the numerous emotions. Read it in one sitting, then reflect and re-read it time and time again. Paula has offered us a concise spectrum of thoughts, emotions and actions that will help one move throughout their personal journey of grief.

Paula Becker has also authored A House on Stilts: Mothering in the Age of Opioid Addiction; Looking For Betty MacDonald: The Egg, The Plague, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle and I; and co-author of The Future Remembered: The 1962 Seattle World's Fair and Its Legacy and Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition: Washington's First World's Fair.  She has written for since 2001.  Her 300+ essays on the site document all aspects of Washington state history.
