A patient asks the hospice nurse…

“Have you been witness to any healing

of patients with cancer”

The nurse turns to the man and says…

“In hospice, working with patients

In the natural process of dying…

I have frequently witnessed something

Even more powerful than the curing of disease.

~~

In the final weeks of a patients life…

I saw the healing of sadness…

the healing of regrets from unmet dreams…

the healing of families too long apart…

The healing that comes from words…

That took a lifetime to say…and

The healing that only letting go brings,”

Setting Sail for True North

~~~

“Home is the sailor, home from the sea,

And the hunter home from the hill.”

 Robert Louis Stevenson

 ~~~

 Come aboard!

 Wordsmith’s Desk is setting sail for “True North.”

Wordsmith’s Desk is charting for “true north.” Each one of us has a place where we’re meant to be. The journey through life is challenging and often, disappointing. The “true north” we search for appears as an elusive mist…the journey without end, but by faith, we will find our “true north.”

I write of love and promises, faith and hope, despair and loneliness, suspicion and doubt, endings both happy and sad. I write of the reality of life, people and feelings, tragedy and triumph, hellos and goodbyes and smiles and tears. I write to encourage and inspire, to cause one to think, to open a mind. I write to mend a heart and to encourage another. I  write to bring hope and I’ll write to chase fear away. I write to discover that which lies within each of us; our true north.

If there is an undiscovered thought or phrase, I  want to find it. The fiction I write may appear to be real…the truth as fiction indeed.

I once saw the writer, I hope he saw me.
