Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a family physician who Lee Scheingold helped mold and mentor during my training thirty years ago, I have been now married almost 32 years, and I am a poet. Lee's book honoring her grief that flowed after losing her beloved Stu reached my heart as a wife and doctor, but most of all she touches my poet's soul --the part of me that seeks the right sound and rhythm with a depth of meaning that will forever transform the reader.

She mentions a note she had made during her writing of this book -- that it felt "like holding a puppy" to write this. I feel, as a reader, that I am fortunate to hold this book's warmth next to my skin and let it soak in deeper. It is a profound and moving experience to spend this time with an author who has left her mark as one the highlights of my life, and through this book, she has done it once again.

Format: Paperback
I just ordered my second copy of this book for a friend. It deals beautifully with the subject of grief by weaving together the part played by poetry, spirituality, and meditation in the grief process. I was moved by the author's wit, intelligence, authenticity, and, finally, self compassion through her journey.

As she mentions and implies several times in this beautiful memoir to "love, dying and poetry", Lee Scheingold is in a zone while writing; and this prose and poetry flows as naturally as if a different part of her brain--and heart-- has taken over. Like an athlete performing at her best, Lee writes as effortlessly and evocative as a pro with special
nods to the loves in her life---Stuart, her late husband; poetry, her long-but-never lost friend, and social work and psychiatry, much of her life's work.
