What happens when our lives are suddenly disrupted by chronic or terminal illness? Of course, science, family, faith and friends are there to help. But as author Dean Scaros demonstrates in this elegantly written and affecting book all the issues we face as a result of illness have been expressed through human artistic sensibility. We have been seeking meaning and solace -- and have often found it - ever since we painted figures on the walls of our caves. This book considers - through the lens of great literature and art- issues that are important to us as we struggle to come to terms with progressive, debilitating illness: issues such as, personal dignity, courage, fear, hope, love, time, chance, fate and friendship, to name just a few. These issues are not physical or clinical. Rather they concern the ways in which we think and feel about our experience. Reflecting on them affords us an opportunity to better understand our experience and even gain a measure of wisdom from it.
I never expected to enter the frightening world of cancer. Lannie had always been wholly healthy. He rarely even had a cold. He was a lifelong nonsmoker with no known cancer risks. Our two children were launched and doing well. Lannie had retired; I continued to work full-time teaching nursing. God blessed us with wonderful grandchildren. Life was calm, peaceful, and fulfilling. So nothing, absolutely nothing, prepared me for the shock of being suddenly catapulted into the horrific world of helping my husband battle the very deadly cancer called mesothelioma (meso). Our peaceful lives of Saturday afternoon college football games, babysitting our grandchildren, and doing whatever abruptly ended with these words: Im afraid your husband has lung cancer. As I struggled to cope, I found myself teetering between faith and fear. I wanted my faith to be strong enough to drive away any fear. Surely, if I were a strong enough woman of faith, I wouldnt be afraid, would I? Prayer became my lifeline as I opened my heart and soul to Him. I invite you to follow me through this journey. I am a registered nurse, so you may think that my nursing knowledge must have enhanced my coping ability and lessened my fearit didnt. I felt frightened, overwhelmed, and lost. However, I recognize that my nursing knowledge helped me navigate the complex pathways of the confusing medical world and provided a certain quality of care for my husband that someone who is not a nurse would probably struggle with. I am thankful for my nursing knowledge. Come with me as I share my journey of coping with my husbands cancer as well as my personal journey of growing faith through fear. My prayer is that my words will comfort and inspire hope for anyone who is facing a serious, life-threatening illness. Our journey involves battling mesothelioma; yours may be a diff erent disease. Th e disease doesnt matter; the battle is the same. I pray that someway, somehow, you win your battle.
Helen Vendler, widely regarded as our most accomplished interpreter of poetry, here serves as an incomparable guide to some of the best-loved poems in the English language. In detailed commentaries on Shakespeare's 154 sonnets, Vendler reveals previously unperceived imaginative and stylistic features of the poems, pointing out not only new levels of import in particular lines, but also the ways in which the four parts of each sonnet work together to enact emotion and create dynamic effect.
This book deals with the critical nature and crucial role of architectural drawings. Organized around eleven exercises, the book does not emphasize speed, nor incorporate many timesaving tricks typical of drawing books, but rather proposes a slow, meditative process for construing drawings and for drawing constructing thoughts.
