The world is round, and stories are also, in a way, round. We long for the satisfaction of an ending that brings us back home, that assures us that all is as it should be. But, sometimes, we only get to see part of the journey, a piece of a life's story. Mary Louise Chown is our guide, showing us the power and the gift of being present in the moment, listening for what may be needed and offering what we can with humility and joy. the stories, both personal tales and folktales, are a wonderful resource, as is her practical advice, but even more valuable is her invitation to accompany her as she accompanies the dying and their families - sharing stories, playing music, listening, and simply being.
