A paradigm-shifting look at the grief and loss experience.
An Extra Year
An Extra Year is the true story of a couple whose relationship continues after one of them dies. It chronicles communication they shared - on their own and with the help of clairvoyants - and how that communication helped the author not to live with grief and loss but to live through and beyond it.
This memoir is anchored in metaphysics and is informed by the universally spiritual concepts Morrison espouses in his work. Yet in a very clear and compelling voice, he manages to present his deeply personal story in a most approachable, down-to-earth, and even humorous way. As such, all manner of readers from those steeped in the loss process to those who have yet to experience it, from self-identified atheists to very religious believers, from teenagers and young adults to senior citizens and more have been able to find something of value in it and to experience its transformative power.
He had just left and I could still feel him and the love we loved to be in. He had just left and I could feel that love in even deeper ways than when he was here. He had just left and we'd shared another sunset together and even added another song to the short list of those we'd considered to be "ours." He had just left and we weren't beginning something new and/or ending something old, we were - as I would come to realize - simply continuing on.
