On a sunny day on a visit to Seattle, I woke heavy-hearted, as the clouds in my head made me feel cold. Susan said, “Let’s go for a walk.” We ambled down University Street toward the harbor. Crossing Third Ave, she spotted the top of an enormous Ferris wheel poking above the buildings blocks away and exclaimed, “C’mon! Let’s find it!”
A poem by Mark Nepo, from his new book, Inside the Miracle: Enduring Suffering, Approaching Wholeness
I was surprised when John,
who helped save my life, came
down with liver cancer. He had
no interest in going through this
the way I did. He didn't want to
talk. He just stared at me for hours.
I so wanted to be there for him.
