"I am slowly, painfully discovering that my refuge is not found in my mother, my grandmother, or even the birds of Bear River. My refuge exists in my capacity to love. If I can learn to love death then I can begin to find refuge in change."

Can't put it down, beautifully done. Reminds me of H is for Hawk only it's the period before the death of a parent, so grieving commences earlier. And Terry Tempest Williams doesn't do it alone, she seeks solitude in nature, but otherwise is with and surrounded by family, at 30, her 52 year old mother is dying & the Great Salt Lake is rising. Birds lose their refuge, a human seeks hers. So many revelations.
