I experience a sudden wave of grief over my husband's death while in between college classes. On my drive home from school I notice a man walking on the side of the road with a large hiking backpack and a sign attached that says "Walking to Listen." Curious, I google him and decide to meet him. It turns out a new friend, this new friend, is exactly what I need.
