Healing Words


This short message was in my inbox when I woke up this morning. What a great way to start the day: my father’s work taking care of people continues through our book–which, by the way, is about two months away from being released for the Indian Subcontinent.

I just sent you a message via Facebook as well. My 80 year old mother read your book, BRAIN IN A JAR, and she did so in ONE day — a  miracle. She cares for my 81 year old dad who has Alzheimer’s, and your book brought her such comfort. She really wants to write you a letter — she has no computer, does not do technology. I am writing to ask where she might send that letter. I have only one address for your publisher in Kentucky. Is that best? Sending you this letter will mean a lot to her. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for lightening her load a bit. What a wretched journey this is, as you know.

This email is especially meaningful on the heels of my recent talk in Clearwater, Florida, where one woman attendance couldn’t find comfort in “just words.” I guess we find help when and where we need it.
