Lee Scheingold’s rich, painful intellectual and personal journey—following the death of her husband—is described from viewpoints that have informed her life: psychoanalysis, clinical social work, Buddhism and family medicine. Yet it is poetry that is the connecting thread, beginning with the Russian poems which she studied in college. Turning to poetry allowed her to face her grief and a new life.
