I Reach Over - hardcover

ISBN: 0983229309

[SR: 762386], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780983229308], Hekasa Publishing, Hekasa Publishing, Book, [PU: Hekasa Publishing], Hekasa Publishing, I Reach Over offers a sad but rewarding glimpse of a transformative process, in the deeply felt and highly imaginative poems of a successful physician-scientist diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). Robbed of the future he'd worked so hard and long for and facing the horror of progressive paralysis, the author counters with an open-minded search for his soul, reflected in this candid and inspiring book. Brutally honest and probing poems layered in visionary imagery parallel the movement of the author's journey through these never imagined dark spaces. An insightful Introduction to the poet and his poems is rendered by theologian and poetry enthusiast Katy Rigler. Heart-felt correspondences between the author and his sister Sally Kilpatrick roughly chronicle the first six months of the poet's battle with the "neuromuscular guillotine" of ALS. As a perpetual scholar, the author's spiritual journey has been accompanied by a driven digestion of a varied literature, with brief reviews and comments included for more than fifty books that accompanied the trial and trail during the period in which the poems were composed. The well integrated prose portions convey a sometimes haunting inquisition of the author's precious life-long served science and his post-diagnosis growing attraction to Vedanta and the teachings of Sri Ramakrishna to provide the tools for the journey into death and perhaps beyond. The personal attributes with which this quest was begun, including as demonstrated in past contributions to prostate cancer research, are presented in warm tributes by two highly accomplished prostate scientists, Drs. Simon Hayward and Scott Lucia. A Forward by Dr. Stanley Appel, one of the world's most renowned ALS experts, puts this inspiring collection into proper perspective; particularly appropriate as the author has pledged the profits of his realized efforts to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). This precious book conveys a staggeringly difficult, yet ultimately inspiring, transition to a frail but love-filled container of a broader wisdom, gained by a newly discovered poetic soul in its darkest hours of illumination. A must read for poetry fans, men and women with ALS or other terminal diseases, and those who love them or humankind in general., 10267, Inspirational & Religious, 10248, Poetry, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
