Loss creates a barren present, as if one were sailing on a vast sea of nothingness. Those who suffer loss live suspended between a past for which they long and a future for which they hope. They want to return to the harbor of the familiar past and recover what was lost…. Or they want to sail on and discover a meaningful future that promises to bring them life again…. Instead, they find themselves living in a barren present that is empty of meaning.

-- Gerald L. Sittser in A Grace Disguised
