Resolving myths to histories permits us to build more autonomous futures. Read the rest of this post »

On September 11, 2001, I was having dental work done in Providence, Rhode Island, when news of the attacks came through. My wife, Beatrice Beebe, was at work in New York City only a few miles from the World Trade Center. When we reunited later that week, we knew our lives were changing, and I encouraged her idea to help in Manhattan somehow, since she was well experienced aiding mothers with young children.

The poems, prose and pictures in this book are a culmination of many discussions, readings, clinical help and sundry emotions over the past twelve years. But I did not realize there might be poetry here until December, Read the rest of this post »
