    A State of loss

    I looked forward to this book when I first heard of it and reserved it eagerly. I will not say I was dissappointed but at times reading Kayak Morning was akin to listening to an aquaintance speak of their sorrow and not knowing what to say or worse, not knowing when you could stand up and leave without being offensive. The sense of grief and sorrow is so profound in this small book that you feel wrong to put it down. As if by doing so, you are discounting the loss.
    There is no answer here. No epiphany waiting at the end. Only loss.

    Pure Poetry!

    I am highlighting lines on almost every page! This book is full of rich descriptions of living with the aftermath of grief. Originally from New York, Rosenblatt's lyrical writing of the area brings me home to the best of Long Islands natural habitats, love, and loss.

    My first contact with this author

    Beautiful and rich use of words, symbolism. Poetic and easily read. Will read again. A must for anyone who is grieving the loss of a loved one!
    Am now reading all of Rosenblatt's books.
